funeralThe funeral customs were inherited from the Romans. They used to plant a cypress tree in front of the house of the deceased. Nowadays this custom was modified, so the people use a fir, or a regular tree. Sometimes the family of the deceased hires a lamenter for the funeral; otherwise the late is lamented by his wife, niece or the women in the village. When someone is on his death bed the family calls for the priest to perform an extreme unction by reading from the Bible, so the soul of the dying man lives the body easier.
