Life Cycle Customs

Customs which happen in the life of an individual such as Birth, Marriage or Death. Leaving school, Graduation and Retirement are more recent additions. A life cycle custom should celebrate the event in some way. Sometimes the event is a rite of passage (e.g. from boy to man). Some cultures (e.g. Jewish) are much richer in these customs than others.
