text: Gifts for relations-in-law:
text: A man gives to his son- or brother-in-law no special gifts, but invites him and his children and entertains them at the Oyabu and is later on asked back. But to relations-in-law (89) of another village (Tanhai, Punkhung) gifts are given when they go back to their village.
