    get a motor-car and cover it with different kinds of flowers and ribbons. Their friends get more motor-cars and they go to the church. When they are married the bridegroom leads the bride into the first motor-car and they go round the country for a spin. The straw-boys visit the houses to have fun and pleasure. They are dressed with long skirts and tall hats. Their faces are black so that they would not be known.
