Grandmother story on Chinese superstitions

This is the story from my grandmother regarding Chinese superstitions. Here is
a list of weird and uncommon superstitions as practiced by the Chinese until today.
Some are true but most are funny to believe.

Here are some examples of Chinese superstitions:

Hitting others with a broom will result in bad luck for many years to come.
Brooms are to be kept during the Chinese New year period and no sweeping of the house is allowed because this will result in bad luck and loss of wealth for the household.
Wearing a moustache and not shaving will bring about bad luck. This belief is contrary to the common portrayal of Chinese in the olden times.
Cutting or trimming one's nail at night is not encouraged as this practice will attract wandering spirits to one.
Dogs are believed to be able to see ghosts and spirits due to the fluid in their eyes. By applying this fluid over one's eyes, one can actually see ghosts. This is how temple medium see ghosts.
When dogs howl for long periods at the wee hours of the mornings, this signifies death in the surrounding area.
Babies can also sense spirits. When they sense 'unclean' spirits, they will wail without reason.
When one dreams of teeth or snow, it means death of one's parent.
Pointing at the moon will result in one's ears to be cut off. (This belief appears to be most fictious, mainly because the result does not happen. However, parents continue to pass on this belief as they often use this story to scare their children.
What are some of the wedding superstitions?

A Chinese is not allowed to marry anyone with the same surname. The Chinese also prohibit marriage between cousins who are closely related. They believe that the offspring of such marriage will be retarded. However, marriage between cousins still occurs. Such marriage are arranged so as to strengthen family ties and to ensure that the family wealth does not fall into the hand of the outsiders. If in the unfortunate event that a relative of either party dies before the wedding day, the wedding must be postponed for a year. It is improper to hold a wedding while still in mourning.

A Chinese man is advised not to marry a girl without pubic hair. The reason is that
she may not be fertile and thus produce no offspring.
The Chinese refer to pubic hair using various poetic terms, including "black rose," "fragrant grass," "sacred hair," or "moss." Women without any pubic hair are known as "white tigers"; black pubic hairs are said to indicate a strong and obstinate woman; brown with golden tints are the sign of an easy and generous woman; and fine, silky, short hair is said to mean quiet and retiring [and bushy hair indicates a passionate woman]. In the Chinese culture, upward growth of a woman’s pubic hair is considered a sign of beauty; and abundant hair is regarded as a sign of sensuality and passion.

    Tablets are like the Titanic; it should never be your primary device,
    unless checking email, watching You - Tube videos, and stalking people on Facebook
    is what your life consists of. The Black - Berry Playbook price has not yet been
    revealed but it is thought that it could be up to £100 cheaper than the equivalent i - Pad model,
    which will make it a very attractive proposition indeed once the Black - Berry Playbook release date arrives.
    The Blackberry Play - Book makes a superb back-to-school gift, and also a great holiday gift idea.

    What the heck i just read? The earliest matter is
    to check with a health care provider prior to making use of this product.
    The extract of Yacon Syrup can be purchased such as supplements and products and talking to a
    doctor can provide you a obvious understanding
    of the fact that will it suit you or not. This remedy usually suits the requirements of
    all of the men and women but exceptions are usually
    there. So, you need to make sure that you usually are not the main one who are unable to utilize this solution. Another important thing is regarding the medication dosage.
    You have to consult your medical professional concerning intake and be
    precise about it authentic Yacon Syrup.
    WOW.Nice read here. The true step to just how this supplement is effective is it is really a dual-action diet solution, which means
    that functions as being an appetite reducing aid plus a "fat burner".
    This actually means that it oxidizes your fat skin cells by using anti-oxidants,
    and this ends in even more vitality for yourself - however , only when you know how to have authentic Yacon Syrup in the suitable style.Almost all diet
    products available today are designed around reving up your metabolic process, which
    is certainly simply not harmless for many people - and that is why a lot more people
    decide to obtain Yacon Syrup extract instead.
