My husband and I just moved in this remodelled house last month with our toddlers. It’s a Victorian-inspired home that we got for a low price. We were so happy and excited to this new life waiting for us. But our joy is disturbed lately by the old lady living next door. She’s been saying that our house is cursed or haunted or something. She keeps telling me to burn sage or do some ritual thing to drive away bad spirits. I know Lima women can be a little traditional given the abuelita was like that but my husband and I don’t really believe in ghosts or the supernatural. Should I just take precaution and follow what the lady is saying? We haven’t felt anything peculiar yet. How do I tell the old lady to lay off from us?
