The superstition of opening an umbrella indoors spans across many cultures. While the origin is not completely agreed upon, some say it can be traced back to the Egyptians. Umbrellas were used mainly in Egypt to protect (mostly nobility or religious leaders) from the heat of the sun, not the rain, and were thought to ward off spirits who may do them harm. To open one inside or even in the shade would offend the Sun God. In Bulgarian culture, the only time to collect an even number of flowers is when you attend a funeral. And shoes placed on a table symbolize the death of a loved one, and can also be associated with contamination.
