FEEDING THE DEAD
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
Old wives tales surrounding the
dead and death are plentiful. Many of the old wives tales surrounding death are
carried over into action to keep the dead in their restful state. One such old
wives tale says that the spirit of a deceased person will rise after three days.
Many believe that the deceased family member can come back to settle old
disputes and such with family and friends, so the family ensures that the
deceased member will be delighted by food and gifts placed on the grave. The
food is thought to fill the deceased soul with good will and happiness so that
there is no need to come back and seek revenge or settle old scores.
This is an old wives tale that has been observed
for a long, long time. No one knows for sure where it comes from; yet people
still flock to the graves of their dead friends and family to present them with
food and gifts, should they happen to rise again after three days!
