What is sitting shivah? Who celebrates the Day of the Dead? Why do Sikhs share a meal after a funeral? This book looks at different funeral traditions from burials to cremations. The Hindu and Buddhist belief of reincarnation is discussed. A variety of mourning rituals are investigated, including the donation of food and money to the poor. New and non-religious funerals, such as the pagan-style rituals of the humanists, and the environmentally conscious green burials, are also explored.
