The world is an increasingly fantastic place to live in—with a myriad demographic inculcating it and with a beauty that transcends mortality itself.

Our world consists of nearly 8 billion human beings (accounted for), with varying religions, customs, personal beliefs and other such criteria.

Therefore, it is only fair to state that a certain society may not be the same as the next one. Hence, we look into a few traditions that are as strange as they are fascinating.
