    Sweep stairs or clean handles of cathedral

    by elgin99 Updated Mar 25, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Again and again a fun: unmarried 30-year-old men have to sweep the stairs of cathedral, and 30-year-old women have to clean door handles. Men sweep crown corks, wood shavings or similar from the steps. Unmarried young women need to clean the handles of the portal.
    One may stop only when a virgin or a "young man" kisses one. An organ-grinder plays meanwhile and the friends and relatives drinking.
    The base shall be popular belief, that people who had not participated in the propagation would be banished after the death to a nasty place where they must do an extremely superfluous work.
