- May is considered the most unlucky month to get married, and monday, wednesday, and friday are considered the most unlucky days.When a man wants to marry a certain girl, he sends one of his freinds to her with "an account". The next day the girls parents go to the boys house, and make a match. The day of the marriage the bridegroom goes at the head of the procession, and the bride rides at the back. After they are married they have a race put of the church, and it is said that the one who is out the first will live the longest. Long ago the bridegroom got on a horse, and the bride sat on a frillion at the back. When they reachd the bridegrooms house they had a big feast which lasted until the morning. The "straw boys" go in, in the middle of the night, and they get a good supper. Then thet dance, and behave very nicely and their dress is of straw. When they go to their new home they have another feast.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
