Myths About Mirrors
May 10, 2022 3:23pm CST
I have been collecting mirrors for many years. Some small ones and some large ones. Here are some interesting myths about them: * The most common myth about mirrors is the one that says that if you break a mirror you will have seven years of bad luck. Experts say that you need to leave it for a while and then pick up each and every piece. Touch a fragment on a tombstone. This is supposed to take away the bad effects. One that doesn't break after it falls is said to be good luck. * If two mirrors face each other it is said to set up a portal or dimension for spirits, to allow them to come and go. (I kind of like this one) * It is a Jewish belief that until the body of a dead loved one is buried the soul of this person can get trapped in an uncovered mirror. Also, if someone sees a face in a mirror it is said to be a trapped soul. Mostly I believe they are pretty and add something to the decor.

I am always interested by myths and superstitions. About mirrors, at midnight on Halloween night, if you peel an apple in one continuous strip in front of a mirror, then toss the peel over your left shoulder with your right hand, your future husband will be revealed to you in the mirror.

I probably wouldn't be either but for the fact that I heard an interior decorator say one time that mirrors can make a space look bigger. Living in small apartments most of my adult life I like to have mirrors around to make the space look larger.
