A Superstition Busted: Leaving Your Purse On The Floor

Superstitions are customs that have no borders. Over time, customs that have been exchanged between nations have turned into traditions and superstitions to the point where no one even remembers how they got started. One of the best examples of these superstitions that transcends both time and borders is the belief that if you put your purse or wallet on the floor, you will have financial difficulties. If you're living in Turkey, whenever you put your purse or bag on the floor, there will be at least one person that will tell you not to do it because it shows that you don’t respect money. If you ever get the chance to travel to Brazil, you'll notice that 90-95% of the people there never place their purse on the floor because they believe that you'll go broke. You may have even heard the Feng Shui saying, "A purse on the floor is money out the door.” In the end, the purse on the floor superstition is just like all the others — they either have a logical explanation or they’re just plain nonsense.
