Folk signs: why sprinkle salt and sugar
When our salt or sugar inadvertently crumbles, we immediately recall the folk signs and superstitions. In the head come a lot of thoughts: whether for good, or for trouble. So what do these signs say in our lives, and is it worth believing signs when something crumbles?
If salt crumbled
To scatter the salt — bad omen, promising a quarrel with a loved one. The origin of this omen has a long history and explains its meaning. Earlier, salt was a very valuable product and was on the table only among wealthy people, and even then on holidays.
If someone inadvertently dropped the salt shaker, then, of course, this person was scolded and even beaten, because the salt then cost no measured money, and each pinch of it was almost worth its weight in gold.
Nowadays, everyone in the house has salt and today it does not represent any special value. But only when it crumbles, we remember the bad sign, which in our time has no objective justification, and set ourselves up for the bad.
With salt is connected another very interesting sign. It is believed that if a girl put too much salt in her food (oversalted), then it means she fell in love. The origin of this omen is not known for certain.
One can only assume that when a person is in love, he is very distracted, and maybe not because of this, not only oversalt, but also confuse salt with sugar.

Sprinkle sugar — a sign of good. If you accidentally sprinkled sugar, then this is a good sign, promising a sweet and comfortable life. Fate as if gives you a hint that soon there will be many joys and pleasant moments in your life.
