Description: It is bad luck to open an umbrella inside a house
Not opening umbrellas indoors appears to be the sort of common-sense superstition, like not walking under ladders. But the origin may be the Ancient Egyptians, who used a type of umbrella or parasol to keep off the sun. The Egyptians believed umbrellas symbolised the canopy of the sky formed by the body of the goddess Nut, and religious laws required they only be used outside.
