Mirrors are said to be able to trap spirits 'between the worlds'. It is still common practice in many cultures and religions to cover the mirrors in the house after a death in the family, at least until the body is taken for burial. Until fairly recent times, the bodies of the deceased were laid out in their own homes, and it was believed that if the dead person's spirit caught a glimpse of itself in the mirror, it would remain in the house, trapped in the glass. Many people caution, therefore, against buying antique mirrors and keeping them in the house, because over the years, no doubt they had seen a death or two.

Anon, I never understood that either. I think it might have come about because people don't like the thought of lying in the ground rotting, waiting for Jesus to return and the thought of immediately going to heaven or hell seems better.
