If you scatter or bury coins in the foundations of a new house, you will invite financial prosperity, according to Philippine tradition.
Making reference to this technique that superstitious people use, folklore.ie said: “Following on from the idea of burying something holy in the ground, how many of you have heard/practice the tradition of burying coins, holy medals or bottles of water in the foundation of a new house?”
“Here are some photos of coins I put in the base of a shed of mine last year where you’d always scatter a few coins in the four corners and entrance for luck.”
“We did it in our house when building it too and it’s something I’ve seen done throughout Wexford; also heard of it done in Newfoundland.” the Facebook post concluded.
