In India i had seen it many times that People considered it inauspicious to sweep the floor at night. But most of these people in India and around the world do not know the actual reason behind it. So, I decided to do some research and find out the truth behind it and found out some really knowledgeable and must share stuff.

Why is it inauspicious to sweep the floor at night?

Well there are two type of belief for considering it inauspicious to sweep the floor at night. One is traditional belief i.e. what people believe and other is scientific belief . We will talk about both traditional and scientific (or ancient) belief with some of its history one by one:

 ◾Traditional Belief (what people think):

People believe that if they sweep the floor at night then their good Luck will also be swept away with this and something Bad and Evil will happen to them. So, in most part of our country , People ignore to sweep the floor at night.

◾Scientific (Ancient) Belief:

Its origin dates back to the time when electricity was not available in abundance. This led people to believe that if they swept their floors at night, they might inadvertently sweep away valuables due to inadequate light and also at that time houses were made up of mud. Its not a surprising factor if you find snake, rat roaming in your house You wont inadvertently go near to these dangerous species and put in danger your life That's why also they prohibited to sweep the floor at night. But even after development stepped in and sufficient electricity became available, people refused to part with this belief, probably owing to their lack of rationality or rigidity. Might as well ignore other developments and go back to rubbing stones for making a fire, huh?
