There are not as many customs carried out in this country nowadays as there was in days gone by but even nowadays some of them are carried out.

When a couple is getting married it is a Custom that straw boys should gather into the house in which the couple are getting married and also when they are going to the Chapel the man should go in first, because if the girl goes in first, she would die first and if they both go into together they would die together.
