In a world that is filled with so many countries, religions, tribes and customs, it is extremely impossible for everyone to like everything.
However, considering the fact that we have come a long way since civilisation began, some communities are stuck with age-old customs and tradition. While some of these may be mystical, others are downright lame. Here are 20 Strange Customs From Across The World That Looks Insane
1. Eating the dead’s ash in Venezuela and Brazil
Beyond any doubt one misses their loved one’s the point at which they pass away. But eating their ash to remember them forever? A little far awkward, isn’t? That is precisely what the Yonamamo clan from Brazil and Venezuela does.
Since tradition prohibits them from keeping any body part, it is scorched and crushed, and the remaining parts are isolated among the relatives and eaten by all.
2. Famadihana – Dancing with the dead
A funeral tradition followed by the Malagasy tribe in Madagascar, individuals truly hit the dance floor with dead bodies as part of the Famadihana custom.
After bringing bodies of ancestors from their burial place, they re-fold them in new fabric and dance around the tomb to live music. The custom is followed once in seven years, yet has been in the decline of late.
