There’s a yearly tradition that we do here at the Hotel Thompson that I thought I would share. It’s nothing difficult, really simple if you will. Mom/dad have done this for years and as they say, “If it ain’t broke – don’t fix it!” I thought I would share with my friends here in blogville because one can never have too much of good luck, right?
On the 31st of December before midnight, place money outside on your porch. It can be a loose bill, change, or in an envelope. This stays on your front porch. Before midnight, everyone goes outside of the house.
At midnight, you open the front door and throw the money in over the threshold. This should be the first thing that crosses your door. This represents money coming into your home for the new year. Remember, you don’t step into the home until after the money goes in.
I’m not sure where mom/dad got this from but they have been doing it forever. I mean heck, we’ll take all of the help from everywhere we can, right? Happy money tossing tonight my friends 🙂
