I'm busy reading a very old book titled Primitive Peoples Today written by Edward Weyer, Jr. [1958].
www.amazon.com...

So sad that the most fun and fascinating cultures always disappear.

Many mourn for birds and fish, but few mourn cultural extinction.

For example the Ainu people of Japan.
The marriage ceremony (I'm for this and think more cultures should consider it):


At first the newlyweds live with either pair of the parents, but in due time they build a hut of their own. Before occupying it, they hold a community ceremony to sanctify it. During this, there is so much drunken disorder that the house sometimes catches fire and burns down before the owners have passed a single night in it
(Weyer 1958: page 196).

I wonder if any other members spotted some obscure custom, and you thought - yip, that's exactly what we need!

We didn't start the fire ... it was that side of the family.
