Childhood is the most joyful, fun and carefree time! What a pity that many are beginning to realize this, having already grown up… Adults are forced to go to work, earn money, take care of their families, worry about the future and the present. For a child, the most important thing is to have fun from the heart, watch your favorite cartoon and take a walk with friends.
Let's plunge into those carefree times at least for a minute, remembering funny children's rituals, which, we are ready to bet, you know perfectly well!
Well, who among you has not said "Hello for a hundred years" at least once? It is believed that this phrase helps to avoid a quarrel if you and a friend walked around a tree or a pole from different sides. And, yes, if this happens, then you must perform the ritual, otherwise you will definitely quarrel!
Did you play "the floor is lava"? This is a fun game, the goal of which is not to touch the "hot" floor in any way: jump on chairs, various elevations and do everything to get off the "dangerous" site as soon as possible. Sometimes, instead of lava, they represent quicksand, a swampy swamp or acid, but the essence of the game remains the same.
All children know that if someone steps on the hatch, he will be haunted by misfortunes. To avoid this, you need to slap him on the back, and supposedly after that everything will pass. Perhaps many adults have problems because they began to forget about it?
Cracks on the asphalt should also be avoided. Nothing bad will happen, but good too. After all, dodging a long crack by making a clever maneuver is so much fun! When there are no heaps of gadgets, a computer and a TV, any entertainment is good!
And this ritual is still carried out by many adults. Maybe you too? The bottom line is that when the same numbers appear on the clock (12:12, 00:00, 22:22 etc.), you need to make a wish! It is believed that it will certainly come true.
And this sign, as it turned out, is not so easy to part with ... If you shared some important news, in order not to jinx it, you need to knock on a wooden object three times. Usually this is also accompanied by the words "ugh-ugh-ugh".
What will an adult do if he steps on someone's foot? Apologize and move on. What will the child do? He will ask you to step on his foot in return. It is believed that otherwise people will quarrel.
And if someone suddenly stepped over you when you were lying down, then he just has to step over the same way back! It is believed that otherwise a person will not grow up. How good that we have all grown up and this is no longer relevant.
Another ritual for "wish fulfillment". If someone has an eyelash dropped out, you need to ask the person to guess which eye it is on. After that, he should make a wish and blow the eyelash off his hand. Flew away? So the wish will definitely come true!
How will any adult react when he sees that a huge pimple has popped out on his nose? Of course, he will be upset! And that's in vain… According to a common children's sign, a pimple on the nose means that they have fallen in love with you. Moreover, the bigger the pimple, the more you are loved!
And again about wishes! It turns out that in childhood we dreamed a lot… It is possible to perform this ritual when you are sitting between people with the same names (between two Tanya, for example). You just need to take their hands and make a wish. I wonder if it will work now?
And this way of making wishes is generally easier than ever! You just need to find a lilac flower with five petals and... eat it. But don't get carried away! The stomach of an adult is not ready for such shocks.
After the rain, absolutely all the children did it — they found the biggest puddle and jumped into it with a run! There is no hidden meaning in this, just fun! It's a pity that adults can't do that anymore.
As a child, when we saw the characters of our favorite cartoons holding their breath underwater, we did the same thing while sitting in front of the TV. Well, to check if you have enough for a long time!
Well, the most sacred thing is to make a face and mimic a friend when he is offended by something. We will never believe that you have never done this!
