Hmong Superstition: The Moon

Have you ever heard of the Hmong superstition that if you point at the moon, your ears will be cut? It’s a belief that has been a part of our culture for as long as I can remember. I still recall my parents warning me not to point at the moon when I was a child, and while it may sound silly to some, it’s a tradition that we still uphold in our community. It’s fascinating how certain beliefs and practices can endure for generations.
To prevent the moonfrom cutting your ears you must say these phrases – 🐔💩 , 🐷💩, 🐮💩,🐃💩
