A Chinese Traditional Funeral

I had to get up at 9am to go to a funeral between 10 and 12, the “right” hours. A few things I learned –

1. The urn is not allowed to be directly under the sky, so you open up an umbrella even in the day.

2. Souls eat and drink alcohol.

3. There’s always a spirit of the land that you must bribe so he will treat your respected one better.

4. Light a giant roll of fire crackers after you are done… for fun.
