Why you shouldn't drink tea with a spoon in a cup: the essence of a well-known superstition

People have many superstitions and signs associated with spoons

Everyone knows that the spoon used to stir sugar should be removed from the cup before drinking tea or coffee. But have you ever delved into the essence of this superstition?

OBOZREVATEL has figured out the nuances of its origin. And talks about other signs associated with spoons.

A spoon in tea could serve as a bridge through which evil spirits could enter the drink. In this case, the person who drinks it will get a whole lot of different troubles. Also, a spoon left in tea portends failure in business, which can only be overcome by getting rid of a bad habit. If a spoon is left in a cup by an unmarried girl, it means that she will not be able to get married.

If the spoon falls off the table, it portends the imminent arrival of guests. To "cancel" the effect of the omen, you need to knock the fallen spoon on the floor.

But you should not knock on the table with a spoon. This is a sign of a quarrel between those sitting at the table.

A found spoon portends different things, depending on what kind of spoon it is and its condition. If you find it in an unexpected place, it is a sign of profit. Two spoons found at the same time, especially teaspoons, promise the creation of a family in the near future. A silver spoon is definitely a good sign. It portends prosperity and the end of financial problems. But you should not pick up dirty and broken spoons - such a find will not bring anything good.
