The ceremony of marriage, as well as a funeral one used to be the most important events in the life of a folk community. They marked the passages in the cycle of life, were connected with intense emotions- of joy and sorrow. Both the wedding and funeral ceremonies were celebrated at home, in peasant’s cottage. The house represented the sacred areas, the festive mood that all people find necessary: a table serving as the sacrificial table, sacred pictures serving as the House of God. Durring weddings, the house was the host’s showcase, furnished and decorated with the utmost care. Both the rich and the poor were dying at home. It was a common opinion that a decease at different place ( just like a suddan death ) violates the solemnity of death, disturbs the order of the customs and ceremonies related to death.
