Like everyone else, Czech people have always looked for ways how to foretell the future and Christmas has always been the perfect time for fortune-telling.

According to one popular superstition, girls are supposed to throw a shoe at Christmas. It’s a tradition to toss a shoe over your shoulder with your back to the door. If the shoe lands pointing at the door, you will soon be married.

When the shoe points in the opposite direction, the girl will remain single for at least another year. Also, all women should get a kiss under the mistletoe to have love guaranteed throughout the next year.
