Why you shouldn't sit on the corner of a table: explanation of the superstition

Especially unmarried girls were advised not to sit on the corner of a table

Corners have long been attributed with mystical properties, and there are many signs associated with prohibitions on sitting on the corner of the table. One of the most popular beliefs is linked to marriage.

Young girls were advised against sitting in the corner because it was believed they could "lose their destiny" and remain unmarried. Read OBOZREVATEL's article to understand the essence of this superstition.

Superstitious individuals believe that corners in the house possess different energy properties. Sharp corners are thought to carry the strongest flow of negative energy, potentially affecting one's well-being. Sitting on the corner of a table may make a person feel depressed, helpless, and exhausted, possibly leading to poor health. Conversely, inner corners are believed to absorb negative energy from a person.

It is said that frequent sitting on the corner of a table can result in feelings of tiredness and apathy. According to beliefs, such pieces of furniture take, concentrate, and channel energy.

Sitting on the table itself was also discouraged. Proponents of the superstition claim that by doing so, a person "absorbs" all the problems once discussed at the table.

For girls, the superstition is once again associated with marriage. If a girl often sits at the table, she may never get married or have an unhappy marriage. Sleeping on the table was strictly forbidden, as it was believed to attract serious illness.

Interestingly, after sunset, leaving a knife on the table was considered inauspicious. Failing to put the knife away at night was thought to bring illness to the family and could lead to insomnia or nightmares. Explore other interpretations of this superstition in the article.

Another belief that has survived to this day is that you should not sweep crumbs off the table with your hand. OBOZREVATEL figured out the essence of this superstition.
