5 Common Home Related Superstitions

 

You may be wary of black cats and broken mirrors, but have you heard of some of these property-related superstitions?

In honor of September’s Friday the 13th, here are some property-related superstitions you might want to avoid — just in case.

1. Taking Your Old Broom or Mop to Your New Home

Old brooms or mops are said to hold negative energy. Since these items are used to clean filthy floors, it’s believed they retain “dirty” energy from your home. Taking these items to your new property means you’re also taking the dirt from your old place. You’re making a fresh start so get a new broom and a new mop for the occasion!

2. Choosing a Saturday or Friday to Make Your Move

Native American lore says Friday and Saturday are the unluckiest days for making your move.Thursday is actually said to be the luckiest day instead! But moving earlier in the week will mean dealing with less traffic, plus some moving truck rental companies may offer lower rates.

3. Lucky and Unlucky Numbers

Everyone has their very own lucky or unlucky number. Traditional Chinese culture believes the number eight holds a lucky background. On the other hand, some within the culture believe that the number four holds unlucky powers. Consider avoiding the number four while house searching and keep lucky number eight in mind!

4. Burying a Statue of St. Joseph in The Garden

If you’re looking to sell your house some recommend burying a statue of St Joseph in your garden. It may sound strange but this superstition’s backstory says it will help you sell your property in no time. Just don’t forget to dig him back up after it’s sold! You can use the statue for decoration afterwards.

5. Don’t Walk Under a Ladder

While you’re moving into a new place you may still have some construction going on around the house. There may be the occasional ladder here and there. But, based off of a very popular superstition, you should not walk underneath one. If you do accidentally walk under one just walk back under it the opposite way to try and undo the bad luck!
