    This sounds like what I was raised in. Either there are a whole bunch of similar cults out there, or there are a bunch of ex-friendlies on here!

    Well, not a cult as such as it was one of the major religions of the world, but yes, I had an odd and "spirit" filled childhood.

    Thinking back on some of the tales I heard and some of the things I lived through, it's like a completely different and alien life. And to think that there are millions of people worldwide that still believe in that gunk and still live that superstition filled existence where a woman may not pick fruit at night for fear that something may happen to her baby.
