Kalan -Goañv ha Marv: In Brittany, women honor the dead by pouring milk [laezh] on the tombstones [ysgriniau]. Scary folktales are told about those who tamper with bones [askorn] of the dead. Children play gruesome practical jokes on each other in the cemeteries. They frighten visitors by placing lighted candles [gouloù] inside skulls [klopennad] and set them up in dark corners of the graveyard [gwered]. (18)
