Housewarming Traditions

Housewarming Traditions have evolved over the years, from round bread loaves and salt in Russia to a Ganesha idol in India, the tradition of housewarming gifts giving has a long and venerable history. The tradition of bringing new neighbors together has its origin in Russia. A villager named Boris and his wife Yelena had gifted a loaf of bread for good health and a pinch of salt for long life to the Russian dignitaries who were passing through their village. When the dignitary lifted the bread and inhaled the fresh baked scent. "Such a wonderful welcome," he said with a large grin. The village folk broke out into cheers as a new tradition was born.
In Hindu tradition the housewarming ceremony is accompanied by Satyanarayan Puja. Satyanarayan Puja does not require a Brahman to perform the rites and is usually done on the night of the full moon. It begins by offering a prayer to Lord Ganesha to remove all the hindrances that might occur as a result of incorrectly performing the Puja.

Another part of the puja involves a prayer to the nine important celestial beings of the universe (Navagraha). The remaining part consists of the prayers offered to Lord Satyanarayana.

Some of the traditional gifts that one can gift to someone who has purchased a new house are- a broom to sweep away the evil, a loaf of bread so that your friend never remains hungry, honey represents sweetness in their lives, coin will bring good fortune to them, a pinch of salt at the threshold of each door, window for good luck, plants for your prosperous life, candles for light in life, and wood for harmony and peace of the house.
