Superstition about peering out the window at night

According to an ancient belief, one should not look out the window at night. This superstition dates back to the times of Kievan Rus - parents strictly forbade their children to peer into the night.

A separate sign concerns the full moon. It was said that if you look out the window at night during this period, the moon will drain your health and vitality, and you will feel weak and broken for the next year. OBOZREVATEL will tell you about the theories that were believed in ancient times.

Night has long been considered a time when dark forces are activated. Our ancestors believed that nighttime darkness hides evil spirits, foresters, otherworldly forces, house folk, and witches.
