Lemuria, Lemures, Lemur

It’s the first day of the Lemuria – the Roman annual event on the 9th, 11th and 13th of May, on which the Romans did rites to exorcise
unquiet and malevolent ghosts of the neglected dead, Lemures, using chants, the beating of bronze and tossing of black beans.
And Lemurs.
(Not really)
Some fun etymology for your spooky Tuesday!
