Christmas Superstitions

Holiday Superstitions

We are all familiar with some of the basic superstitions surrounding Christmas. For example if you are bad you will receive coal has been said so frequently it’s no longer even recognized as a superstition. However there are many more. Christmas itself is a holiday full of superstitions and folklore. Here are a few superstitions with the most influential potential in our modern day life. (and a few just for fun.)

Xmas Babies

Xmas Baby Superstition

There is a modern superstition that babies born on Christmas will be lucky in life. This Christmas superstition can be dated back as far as 1525. Then in 1787 the superstition shifted to say that children born on Christmas eve, or day cannot see spirits. Then in 1878 the superstition shifted again. This time to the belief that those born on Christmas day could never be drowned or hanged. The current belief simply stating those babes born on Christmas day are lucky. This came about in 1957 and is still held as truth to this day.

Christmas Decorations

Mistletoe some believe that mistletoe should never be brought into a home before New Year’s day or you will have bad luck. Adversely the more common superstition is that one who avoids a kiss under the mistletoe will have bad luck, however the man should present the woman he intends to kiss with a mistletoe berry. Once the berries are gone, the kissing stops. The leaves should be left until it is replaced the next year to avoid bad luck.

Holly and Ivy are most often found on churches at Christmas time. They are held in high esteem and cherished. It is believed that if you take a small branch of them home and hang it, it will bring about luck in the coming year. Holly is also said to bring protective magic against lightning and witches.

It is believed that nothing but unavoidable work should even be thought of during Christmas.

Whoever is first to open a door in the home should say “Welcome father Christmas.” Also the first person to come downstairs should take a broom and sweep trouble from the threshold.

Decorations should all be removed by the twelfth day. Candles, cards, decorations all traces of Christmas. It is believed to bring about a death if it is not. The remaining decorations are believed to mark the spot of the person who will pass. There will also be bad luck for anyone dwelling in a home that still has decorations up after the Twelfth night.

Numerology: Power & Master Numbers

This time we are going to talk about the three Power numbers otherwise called the Master numbers 11-22 and 33.

The Master Numbers

We do not break these numbers down to a single digit. We refer to them as 11/2, 22/4, and 33/6 because they contain aspects of their single digit counterpart.


We already talked about how elevens have exceptionally high levels of intuition and spirituality. These are the people who are the guides of mankind. They guide us into lives of compassion and awareness. The eleven also has aspects of the number 2 which includes charisma and leadership. The number two is a duality of intuition and inner conflict. The negative side of this is that not many elevens live up to this great responsibility. They are shy and have a lot of nervous energy. This can give way to fear and self-doubt.

Elevens make great teachers, artistic performers and social workers.


Twenty-two is not only the most powerful of all numbers but the most successful. The number 22 encompasses the all or nothing. Twenty-two’s can become the masters of anything they are committed to or they become lazy drifters. Remember, 22 are double 11 and they have the practical aspects of 4. Four’s express themselves best in the material world. What a great combination! They possess an immense potential to achieve with intense productivity. The number twenty-two is rare occurring in a small percent of the population.

Twenty two’s make great leaders in all aspects of life, artists, diplomats and architects.


The number 33/6 is not concerned with self-advancement. It is all about doing well for mankind. This brings with it great responsibilities and leadership skills. These people are all about serving and helping the largest number of people. The down side of this is their being able to discern where, when and whom to help or they become overwhelmed. Remember, 33 combines 11 and 22 all of which are rare numbers. 33/6 also encompasses the number 6 which is about responsibility especially to others. It also represents a take charge attitude along with loyalty. There are always two sides to every number. The negative side to 33 is to become too focused on your own agenda and to care less of others. People born under 33 make great spiritual leaders, teachers and artists.
