* There's a religious and cultural phenomenom in UsefulNotes/{{Chile}} about the [[https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animita "animitas"]], which are little shrines dedicated to some deceased person who died in the street by diverse reasons (car accident, robbery victim, [[KillTheOnesYouLove passional crime]], etc) in where his/her family put an animita in the place he/she died as a kind of LonelyFuneral. Sometimes, the people pray some of them and then [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve some miracles happen]], there're few animitas in Chile that are venerated and are so famous as churchs because of this.
