Why you shouldn't return empty dishes: the essence of the superstition
How many times have you come home from a visit and brought a dish with you, only to return it clean and empty a few days later? However, folk signs say that it is bad luck to return dishes in this form. But why is it a negative sign to return empty dishes?
OBOZREVATEL has figured out the intricacies of folk beliefs and tells you how to return dishes correctly.
Why emptiness is bad
Empty objects contradict the very essence of things because, in nature, emptiness does not exist - it is quickly filled with something. Therefore, it is believed that empty dishes that are passed from hand to hand deprive people of some of their vital energy. This can negatively affect a person's mood or cause minor problems that will be very annoying.
Why it is important to give thanks
So, you should fill the void with something to avoid causing trouble for the person who treated you. Moreover, it would be nice if you returned the favor. To do this, put something tasty in the dish you are returning. This way you will exchange positive energy and improve each other's mood.
