    Lucky traditions for a new house

    Advertisements
    I am moving into a new house next weekend.
    Do you know of, or beleive in, any traditions or customs to bring good luck into a house before we move in?
    I have had a few friends post things on facebook that I shoud do but am wondering if any of you have any other good luck idea for us to try, anything is worth a try.
    Back together again where we belong

    Buy a new mop and broom.

    You never want to take an old broom into a new home.

    Hold on and I'll see if I can find the story behind it. I know it, I just suck at explaining it.

    If the previous owners have been kind, they will have left some bread (or rice, depending where you are in the world) and salt behind for you. If the realtor got rid of it, don’t worry, just make sure the first person to enter carries these items, plus a new broom. Never bring an old broom into your new house - it carries with it many unfortunate remnants of the past. The salt should be sprinkled in all the rooms and across the door sills, so evil spirits will never enter.
    Pick your move-in date very carefully. Regardless of contract exchange, escrow or lengthy chains, you should move in when the moon is waxing. Avoid Fridays, Saturdays and rainy days. Thursday is a propitious day for moving in Tamil culture.


    Poke the fire for luck.
    The first time you leave your new home, make sure you exit by the same door that you entered, otherwise you will never settle.
    If a pal brings you a set of knives as a housewarming present, don’t accept it, or offer them a coin in exchange, unless you expect your friend to become an enemy before too long.
