Death and Superstitious Beliefs
Death & Superstitious things brought me to a conversation with my mother who shared some old time “superstitious” things they did in the islands for a funeral.
One of those was passing a baby over the casket. This was done to prevent the spirit from coming back to visit the child or baby.
I could think, “crazy” right?
But some of the things and one thing in particular that I experienced first had was the following:
- Do not walk across someone grave
- Change your clothes as you get in
- Don’t walk in with the dirt from the cemetery to your home or car
- Don’t go straight home
- Change things out in your home to remove the negative energy from the wake and visitors
