Brooms

Do not lean a broom against a bed. The evil spirits in the broom will cast a spell on the bed.

If you sweep trash out the door after dark, it will bring a stranger to visit.

If someone is sweeping the floor and sweeps over your feet, you’ll never get married.

Never take a broom along when you move. It’s bad luck to bring an old broom into your new house because you’ll bring all your former bad luck with you. Throw it out and buy a new one. If you insist on bringing your favorite broom, there is hope: sweeping something into the new house first will avoid brushing away all your newfound good luck.

To prevent an unwelcome guest from returning, sweep out the room they stayed in immediately after they leave.

If the broom touched your feet you were required to spit on it for fear of having someone in your family sent to jail.
