Old Wives Tale.. thought.. whatever. [Jan. 17th, 2005|06:21 pm]

Broom supersitions.


Do not lean a broom against a bed. The evil spirits in the broom will cast a spell on the bed.

If you sweep trash out the door after dark, it will bring a stranger to visit.

If someone is sweeping the floor and sweeps over your feet, you'll never get married.

Never take a broom along when you move. Throw it out and buy a new one.

To prevent an unwelcome guest from returning, sweep out the room they stayed in immediately after they leave.

heres another sweeping "superstition" (and it actually really works!)

if youre haunted throw salt all over your house and then use a broom to sweep it out the door -- the ghosts go along with it.

this also works with bad luck or if someone puts the "evil eye" on you.

PS; I LOVE YOUR JOURNAL! i'm loving all of these random facts; it's what i live for!

uh
isn't this all kind of things ppl say to you so ya be more carefull?
like ya do'nt sweep trash out the door after dark cuz stranger will see the door is open and person try to rob you
ya dont put a boom near ya bed cuz ya wake up and trip over it
and sweeting over ya feet warns you if someone is sweeping to rasise your legs so they can under. etc... although that salt thing with the haunted house i going to vouce that it does work

"If someone... sweeps over your feet, you'll never get married"

Ah, that explains it then! Hur hur.

Hey, the thing about unwelcome guests reminds me of a funny story... (apologies to any Jehovah's Witnesses) A friend of mine's dad is a Church of Christ preacher. Some Jehovah's Witnesses came to his house one day, and he ran them off, and furiously swept off the porch behind them. They never came back, so I guess it works!   ^_^

(Yeah, I know, it wasn't a very nice thing to do, but I can't help but laugh when I hear that story.)

Re: "If someone... sweeps over your feet, you'll never get married"

United Church of Christ? That doesn't sound like a UCC thing to do.. or anything that a "preacher" should be doing. Makes me gnash my teeth a little.. not htat I'm entirely fond of Jehovah's Witnesses, but still.
