Divorce Effigies?

Local superstitions and traditions here in the interior took me by surprise the other day. A local woman had to explain this one to me.   

 When a man leaves the woman, she may get taunted by neighbors hanging the spouse in effigy as if he has returned to her in tattered clothes.  He hangs there until she lights fire to it. No worries! I don’t think this will take hold in the states. Wow! Here is a vintage look   

Some traditions might be better off dying as well. I think I’ll watch some winter ball.
