9. Superstitions everywhere

Belarusian women are often superstitious – even about the number of flowers they are given!

It is not advised to give a woman a bouquet with an even number of flowers. Unmarried girls would not sit at the corner of the table or try a wedding dress on for fun.

Young Belarusian mothers would hide their babies from strangers because, you know, someone might cast an evil spell on them!
