In the field of interior design, few objects are associated with as much mysticism as mirrors. SSPDaily told about the peculiarities of the signs associated with them.

Our ancestors had a deep respect for mirrors and adhered to a number of strict principles when it came to their use. It was believed that mirrors could both attract prosperity and cause harm. In addition, even the most modest hand mirror could supposedly accumulate the essence of its owner and influence the course of his life.

An ancient folk wisdom suggests that by placing someone else's mirror in your home, you will invite misfortunes and illnesses of its previous owner.

Tradition warned against giving mirrors or accepting them from others. Such a gift could supposedly deplete the recipient's beauty over time. In addition, it was believed that hatred lingers in objects. Thus, receiving a gift from someone who sincerely despised you was considered potentially harmful.

However, if you did accept it, you should first leave the mirror in the dark for three days.
