If and when one will be married is a question asked all over the world. In parts of Moravia, it was a popular custom on Christmas Eve for unwed girls to take off one shoe, turn their back to their front door, and toss the shoe at the door. Tradition said that if the shoe landed with its toe pointing to the door, the girl would be married before the next Christmas.
