Mongolia - Whistling

In Mongolia, the nomads live inside a ger. Ger is a Mongolian word for Yurt, a portable felt covered dwelling structure used in the steppes. It is considered bad luck to whistle inside a ger, it is believed that this act will cause a windstorm which can be very dangerous on the steppe. The sound of someone whistling would be easily mistaken as howling winds.
