You are likely to have heard about some common myths and legends surrounding doors. The best ones are funny, while the worst ones are terrifying. The fact remains that myths remain myths; therefore, we appreciate their staying that way.
These are some of the myths that exist.
SPIDER AT YOUR DOOR:
A spider crawling on your door indicates that you will be receiving an unexpected visitor. Is it likely to see a spider doing this on your door during this season?
So, if you want visitors, you should plant a spider on your door or invite someone over.
THE GOD OF DOORS:
You are wondering if you read that correctly. The Romans had a God of doors named Janus.
His portraits depict him as a man with two faces; one facing backward-towards the past, and the other facing forward, to the future, symbolic of transition.
THE 6-PANEL DOOR MYTH (AKA Christian Door):
A Christian door is so named because the design on the panel depicts a cross and a bible. Invented in the early 1700s, they featured 6-panels that bore a cross and the bible engraved on them.
Six-panel doors were used to ward off witches, demons, and other forms of evil. We don’t know if it worked, but they scored points for aesthetics.
A red door had many meanings in different societies and cultures back then, and we’ll explore a few of them here:

Additionally, red doors are reputed to keep physical and spiritual harm at bay. It makes sense if you think about the story of Passover when God instructed the Israelites to paint their doorposts with the blood of a lamb to keep an angel from killing their firstborn.

A home with red doors signifies to tired travelers that it is a warm and welcoming place.
