MIRRORS AND LIGHTNING
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
Mirrors have long been a popular
object of old wives tales. One of the more popular old wives tales concerning
mirrors is that they should always be covered during a rain or lightning storm.
The old wives tale says that if a mirror is not covered during a lightning
storm it will attract the lightning and the house will be struck and burned
down. For many ages people would quickly cover their mirrors with blankets and
sheets at the sight of a rain cloud to prevent their home from being struck
down. Others refused to keep mirrors hung in their home, as they didnít want to
have to worry about being away when a storm approached.
Luckily, we now know that mirrors donít attract
lightning as many of us have them in our homes and they have never attracted
lightning. Oddly enough, there are still people that observe this old wives
tale, just in case!
