  1. Long ago the people used to play a lot of tricks at a wake. They used to play. The people used to have a thick rope made from straw. On the night of a wake they would sit down on the floor in a ring and they would have one person in the middle of the ring. They would pass the rope from person to person and they would keep hitting the person in the middle until he would catch the rope.
