FAMILY CUSTOMS

Deep changes in the life of rural localities, the resettlement of farmers, particularly their movement to the cities, have changed the traditional family customs quite considerably. Customs related to the christening of a child have disappeared almost completely. Wedding customs have been preserved a little better, whereas funeral traditions have survived best of all.
