The Daily Roar

Cementing or burring coins

Filipino people have a lot of superstitious beliefs and practices that they say can allow good luck and fortune dwell freely. Tourists may visit a house especially those which are owned by the Ilocanos and wonder why some coins can be seen on the superficial part of the cemented doorstep. Filipinos believe that aside from being wonderful to look at, house owners can attract good luck and prosperity. Others put a lot of coins because they believe that the more coins buried or cemented, the luckier they will become. Some of them even put different kinds, sizes, and colors of coins.
