And remember that if you look for the deep meaning behind these strange traditions, you will probably find that they make weird sense. There are many traditions that make no sense at all. Some of them look like a punishment or physical torture regardless of the reason behind doing them. Let's have a look at some of these bizarre, funny, weird and strange traditions.,

Bathroom ban is another lame custom followed by the some tribes in Indonesia. The couple are not allowed to use the bathroom for three days after the wedding. No urinating, defecating or bathing. The tribe believes that it leads to a happy married life. To make that, possible, the family ensures that the couple eats and drinks only small amounts.


2. Feed the dead with wine in Rome
