Closing Eyes When Making A Wish


The custom of closing one’s eyes when making a wish goes back to ancient sun worship. People asking for favor turned towards the sun which as the giver of warmth and light, they imagined to have occult power. 

Being unable to look into the sun because of its glare, they instinctively closed their eyes simply t prevent blindness.

Later generations forgot the original circumstances and the physiological reason. Without knowing why people assumed that the gesture had magic potency. They were thus convinced that unless they closed their eyes when making a wish, it would not come true.
