Doors are used by people to go inside and outside most houses. Mirrors are known to be used as something where we could see and check ourselves because it can reflect our image clearly. Filipino people believe that mirrors should not be placed on the wall facing the door that faces outside the home. This means those which are in the toilet or bathroom are exemption. They say blessings may not flow inside the house because the mirror will reflect it and send it back outside the house. This is why when you visit most houses owned by a Filipino, you can rarely see mirrors facing the door.
