A Longtime ago

I heard A LONG, LONG, LONG, LONG, LONG, time ago people use to not cut their hair, because it was a part of their religion.It would get very long, so they would braid it and make braids in it and make it ropes so long they would make it like a ladder into their tower like houses.So all the men and women would wait for some one to climb it.Now does this story sound familar?Thats because it is kinda like the story of ''Rapunzel''. But it is not because at Christmas time they would hang Christmas lights on their hair whitch would start major fires and they did not have fire men so it didn't look good for them after that.
