Graveyard ghosts and traditions

You would expect graveyards to be full of ghosts. However, this is not the case!

There is a tradition that only the spirit of the first person to be buried there is destined to haunt it. Legend claims it has to protect for all eternity the graves of all who are buried after them. 

It's also said that if a person lived a good life, flowers will grow on the grave. If the person was wicked, weeds will grow. 

It's supposed to be bad luck to meet a funeral procession heading towards you. If this can't be avoided then hold onto a button until it passes and that should prevent any bad luck coming your way. Also, a funeral procession should never return from the graveyard the same way it came. This is to prevent the spirit of the deceased from following the living home.
