The superstition of broken dishes is a deeply rooted belief that has been passed down from generation to generation. We have prepared material for you that discusses the origin, meaning, and evolution of this superstition over time.

In Ukrainian culture, there are several versions of the origin of the superstition about broken dishes. According to one version, it is connected to the belief in spirits that live in the house. It was believed that broken dishes could anger these spirits and bring bad luck to the house. According to another version, this is because hospitality is valued in Ukraine. Breaking a dish was considered a violation of hospitality and a manifestation of disrespect for guests.

At its core, the superstition indicates that "accidents are not random" but have a deeper meaning and significance. It suggests that everything happens for a reason, and even seemingly insignificant events can have serious consequences.

Broken dishes are considered a bad omen

It is believed that breaking dishes means that there will be a quarrel or dispute in the family. Others believe it means that someone will soon receive unexpected news, good or bad. Another interpretation suggests that the person who broke the plate may have offended a person or spirit and needs to make amends to restore balance and harmony.

While breaking dishes may seem like a minor inconvenience, many Ukrainians take this superstition seriously and believe it can have serious consequences. It is often perceived as a warning to be more careful and avoid possible conflicts.

However, for those who do not believe in this superstition, broken dishes are perceived as just an unfortunate accident that does not matter much.
