Do you have any family superstition rules?
Many chinese households have family superstition rules of what you can't do at home or at any occasion. What are your family superstition rules? Mother in law said kids are not allowed to go out at night. Might step on dirty spirit.
My parents wouldn't let us play with a Ouiji Board because it was supposed to help Satan possess us. True or not, I still haven't played with one because of that.
interesting family tradition! Never heard of this board before. So, who created this board? Why would the satan posses people?

Of course, I don't follow any of them but yes these were certain superstitions prevalent during my childhood days.
Same as yours when I was kid My father won't let us play outside during night because bad spirit travel or flee from other places.
I remember cutting nails, buying salts at night is bad luck.
Two siblings being married within a year cause badluck.
A pregnant woman should not seat down on the door step may cause abnormal delivery.
Using crack or chap glass or plate is bad luck too, it has to be thrown away.
Theres few superstition so far that reminds of me to follow during childhood but rightnow i gues it depends.
