Every culture and religion have their uniqueness which make them different from the others. The traditions followed by them cannot be justified, they have their own reasons.
Though they are too odd and bizarre but we can’t do anything and they exist. So I have brought you some creepiest traditions, check them out:
1. Bullet ant gloves
This tradition is practised in Amazonian tribe where boys have to prove their manhood by wearing a woven mitt which has deadly creatures called bullet ant placed in it. They have to wear this mitt on hands and dance for 10 minutes. The unusual part is that they have to do it for 20 times in their lifetime.
