Throughout history, the meaning attributed to cutlery has been quite interesting. The modest spoon attracts special attention. SSPDaily tells you about the signs about spoons that our grandmothers and their ancestors followed.

In the old days, the patriarch of the family was given the biggest spoon. Interestingly, it was considered taboo to use this spoon to stir food. It was believed that this could lead to marital discord and disputes between spouses, which increased the importance of maintaining harmony during meals.

Other signs were also associated with spoons, which provide interesting information about past beliefs and practices. For example, it was believed that the noise of cutlery, especially the clattering of spoons, could lead to conflicts in the family.

To maintain a peaceful atmosphere, it was advised to quietly and carefully remove the cutlery from the table, minimizing any disturbing sounds.

In addition, our ancestors warned against "hanging" spoons on the plates, as it was believed that such an act would bring bad luck to the house. Borrowing someone else's spoon was also indecent and unkind, as it was believed that it could bring illness or disease to a person.

In addition, the practice of washing the cutlery emphasized the importance of taking a short rest after eating. Just as people were encouraged to take a moment to breathe after eating, the same principle applied to the cutlery itself. Don't rush to wash the spoons right away, give them time to rest. They believed that this practice preserved the health of both the dishes and the people who used them.

Even when it came to caring for spoons after washing, additional signs were observed. Instead of wiping them dry after washing, it was usually advised to let the water drain naturally by hanging the spoons or carefully placing them so that it could drain.
