One little known old wives tale
says that if someone whistles after dark that it will welcome burglars to their
home and their most prized possessions will be taken from their home. There are
variants of this old wives tale that say you must not whistle outside of your
home, but all of them say the same thing, not to whistle after dark or youíll
lure the burglars to your home.
Where this old wives tale comes from is unknown.
What is known is that whistling would tend to keep burglars away from your home,
as they know that you are home and could ruin their plan to take your things!
This old wives tale may stem from the fact that homes used to be far from one
another and burglars would often be drawn to areas where they heard people doing
simple things, things such as whistling! Thankfully, you are free to whistle and
this will likely not be the direct cause of your home being broken into.
