Will the Blood Moon harm my unborn baby? — 4 Comments

  1. Thanks for the great article. Here in Venezuela the superstition is very much alive, as seen and heard in reactions to last night’s “blood moon”

  2. i like it but i ned one more thing to know can you please explain why do mother do not hang their baby’s nappies when blood moon in fear of bad luck? if you read this pls explain it thank yo.:)

    • I didn’t even know some mothers believed that. I suppose it’s all tied to the same thing, that eclipses are unusual and make the world feel a bit wrong (because it’s so strange to feel everything go dark in the middle of the day, and to hear the birds suddenly go silent, and all the other little things that change). If you’re already the sort of person who believes in bad luck or evil spirits, then I suppose it’s natural to see an eclipse as some sort of omen. And if you connect that to your baby’s nappy, well that seems as logical to me as all the other strange ideas people have!
