In the olden times the people had a lot of customs at wakes and funerals. They would keep the corpse in the house for two days and two nights. There used to be a great gathering of people at night.
When they would come to the wake the first thing the women friends would do was to cry out loud over the corpse.
There would be boxes of clay pipes filled with tobacco and every member would take one.
