Sunday In House Gists - Strange Tradition And Beliefs....

 This life eh,e no balance oh!!!!





A BV says ''I overheard a lady saying in Akwa ibom, if you perceive one else's urine it will cause you bad luck... 

Another person says '' I gave a lady a massage, after it she asked me to hit my Palms on the floor three times, until now she didn't tell me any good reason for that ..se na so Dem dey do for their place)

I hear that Some people don't sweep their houses at night,because it allegedly causes bad luck
Some say, you don't sleep with your legs directly facing the door. That's the position for dead Bodies...
Some say Bride price can't be paid when a girl is pregnant,that it's an abomination

Some don't look at the mirror at night and i dont know why..
Some say You don't count a child's teeth.. etc


Which ones do you know?which are in existence in your family or village?or which one did you hear of that ''offed'' you?

    3. I was at a salon once and made friends with this lovely baby girl who kept giggling with me. I couldn't resist so I asked her mum to let me hold her and I held her up infront of a mirror telling her to see how beautiful she was. Her mum flipped and said you shouldn't hold a baby in front of a mirror or they'll be possessed by evil spirits and grabbed her baby back. I have never held a stranger's baby unless I was asked to help since that day.

  4. Yoruba- You don't throw a baby's bath water outside at night except you light a stick of matches inside the baby's water bath

    ReplyDelete
  5. After washing bitterleaf, you're expected to throw the water inside the Bush. It's believed that, any young unmarried lady that crosses the water automatically becomes barren.

    Another one is, my grandpa never allowed any menstruating woman to enter his yam barn. Said it brings badluck.

    While growing up, we were never allowed to call each others name at night. You hear things like 'small sister, big sister, middle sister, last brother'. E plenty.

  6. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.(Col. 2:8)
    I don't subscribe to all those superstitions. By the Grace of God, I am
    a citizen of heaven and my life is guided by God's Word and not by vain myths.
    People who follow these myths are in bondage to the elemental forces of this world.

  19. There is one big river in my town. They told us that before the river settled there,my town and the river had a covenant that it will never drown any indigenes of my town. This river swallow many people that are not from my town, In 2001, for the first time in history, this river drown a girl of 16yrs. The elders went to the river and gave it one week to provide the girl alive or else. They keep on going to the river everyday to check. One the third day, they saw the girl beside the river unconscious. They took her home and perform some cleansing. It took this girl almost 6months to come back to her right sense. Up till now the girl did not say what happened nor what she saw. The lady is now married with kids.

  28. I learnt that most of those strange belief is actually said to put fear of doing the wrong things in the olden days. Like, when they if you sit at the entrance of a house to eat, that you will never be satisfy. The elders say this to put fears in the heart of that child so that in case someone want to enter the house, dirt will not enter you food and cause you harm. Same thing like putting a child by the mirror, that the child might be curious to see his or her image and mistakingly break the glass,that can end up hurting him/ her. So it just made believe to scare children.

  37. My grandmother once told me that if a woman was married to an old man and she wasn't sexually satisfied, or the man was impotent, she could approach the 'ekpashi' (elderly decision-making women of the clan and ask to find a young man or young men who could sexually satisfy her. This is on the condition that whoever she chose would be known to them ( the ekpashi), and any children she gets from this affair would belong to her husband and bear his name.
