    No. I don’t believe in that stuff.

    I’d do it if I liked the church and the priest that would do it.  We’ve had previous houses blessed.   Growing up we had priests over our house all the time for dinner, so one of them blessing it when they came was no big deal.

    Our house was blessed before we moved in … but that was because the last guy who lived in it killed himself. wamp womp.

    I don’t really believe in that stuff, but I’m not gonna lie — the first night sleeping in our house, I was totally on the lookout for ghosts.

    @Stephville:  It was the management company that had the house blessed, not us … which was probably a good thing since I know we never would have done it! Luckily I figure as far as ghosts go, a suicide ghost would be pretty benign, right? I mean, a hell of a lot better than, say, the murdered family/children ghosts that are always making trouble in every horror movie ever. At least a suicide ghost isn’t out for vengeance. Our ghost just pops our freezer open every so often, which is kind of a dick move but I guess I shouldn’t complain.

    @Stephville:  It’s a thing in Catholicism, so I’ll be doing it whenever FI and I move in. We also get new vehicles blessed.

    MIL brings it up.  She has holy water that has mold in it.  I don’t care either way, as long as the moldy water can be cleaned up after.  She hasn’t been to our house though, and FIL either forgot to bring it or if it did he didn’t do it.  DH doesn’t want it done.

    My aunt gave me holy water 5 years ago. I’ve blessed every apartment FI and I have lived in, plus both our cars.
