DAY 8: ROMANIAN CHRISTMAS SUPERSTITIONS

Yesterday I talked about some Romanian Christmas traditions so I think it’s only fair to share with you some of our Romanian Christmas superstitions.

  • If someone is born on Christmas Day it is thought that he or she will have good luck all their lives.
  • If you wear new shoes on Christmas Day you will have bad luck all year long.
  • If it’s snowing on the Christmas Day we’ll have good weather during Easter.
  • If you don’t decorate your house with mistletoe for Christmas than you will have bad luck all year.
  • If you spill wine on the table you will have a lucky year.
  • If you kiss under the mistletoe on Christmas year you will have a lucky year, but if you avoid kissing under the mistletoe you will have bad luck.
  • If you clean your house or take your trash out on Christmas Day you will have an unlucky year.
  • If you eat apples on Christmas Eve you will have a healthy year.
  • If you light a candle on Christmas Eve you have to let it burn out in order to have a good year.
  • If you wash your face on Christmas day with water in which you put a silver coin, you will be healthy the whole year.

Do you have any interesting superstitions in your country?

  1. This was very interesting! I think that first one is the same for everybody, at least that’s what I’ve been told! The new shoes superstition is pretty interesting. My cousin got a new pair of shoes one year, he didn’t wear them necessarily but once he opened them I sadly threw up all over them! I still feel bad about that after all these years! Nobody’s gotten a new pair of shoes since! Lol
