Did you know that the original housewarming party was literally a housewarming? Guests brought firewood as gifts and lit fires in all the fireplaces in the home. Obviously this warmed up the place for the family, but it was also believed to ward off evil spirits.

Do you know what it means when you see a red door?
Throughout history, a red front door has symbolized many things — the ancient Hebrews believed it would protect firstborn children from the angel of death; in the early days of America, it meant the home was a safe place for travelers to stop for the night. In Scotland, home owners paint their front door red when they pay off their mortgage. And according to Feng Shui, a red front door invites positive energy into a home.
