CUSTOMS

DURING THE FIRST SEVEN WEEKS IN LENT, YOU HANG A STRING FROM
THE CEILING. YOU TIE SEVEN CHICKEN FEATHERS ON THE END OF
THE STRING. IF YOU ARE GOOD FOR THE FIRST WEEK AND HAVE KEPT
THE FAST, A FEATHER IS TAKEN OUT AND THROWN AWAY. THIS IS
DONE FOR ALL SEVEN WEEKS. IF YOU ARE BAD AND THE FEATHER
ISN'T REMOVED, IT WILL COME AND STICK IN YOUR EYE.
