In Navajo, the fog is considered a sacred element. Ever since I was young, I was always told to never shout or yell in the fog.
Reason being so is that the Holy People are walking inside. Their bodies take the form of midst. Making them pure.
When the fog comes, the Holy People come and with them they bring blessings. They do their plantings and offerings as well.
The fog appears only when the mother earth and father sky meet. You're not supposed to be doing any wrong doing or crazy things during this time.
