Mirrors should be sheeted or draped during thunder or lightning storms and photographs should be turned to face the wall. Similarly mirrors should be shrouded in the sickroom or in the presence of death. It is ill advised to look through a mirror at dusk or twilight and infants should never be allowed to see their reflection before the first birthday. "They entice young virgins and boys by means of mirrors and their reflections seen in fingernails and lure them on in the belief that they love chastity whereas they hate it." "My great aunt used to say that if anyone looked too long in a mirror, they would see something they didn't want to see."
