Why you can't put forks on the table tines up

Although the knife is the real "star" of superstition, there are also a lot of signs associated with forks. One of them forbids placing the utensils with the tines up on the table.

It is also not recommended to put forks in an organizer with the tines up. OBOZREVATEL figured out what this is about.

First of all, the fork is a cause for concern among superstitious people as they believe that any sharp instrument is a "magnet" for evil spirits.

Therefore, it is also not recommended to leave forks on the table overnight.

As for the position of the tines up, the sign says that in this way the owner can attract conflicts and quarrels to the house, as well as problems in various fields, illness and poverty.

According to another version, a fork left with the tines up can lead to loneliness. This rule, according to the superstitious, applies to both married and single people. In the first case, it can allegedly lead to divorce, and in the second case, to the fact that a person will never find happiness in love.

Skeptics say that a fork left with the tines up can indeed lead to trouble, but more mundane. In particular, it can injure residents, especially children.

There is also a danger for animals, who can injure themselves or others with one wrong movement.
