MARQUESAS ISLAND – Ooucchhh (5/8)

In the Marquesas Island of French Polynesia, once the wedding gets over, all the friends and family gathered there, lie side-by-side on the ground to form a  Human Rug. It is a must for the newly wed couple to walk over them and only then can they leave the venue. We tried going through the history of it, but did not find an explanation for this strange custom. We would just want to give the bride a gentle suggestion – ‘Mam, we know its your D-day, but can you please avoid wearing those stilettos…!!!’
