Feeding the Dead


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!
