Different cultures have different funeral customs. Here are some different types of funerals that occur around the world:
- India. The deceased is cleansed and dressed in preparation for cremation. Sacred objects are then passed around in a counterclockwise direction to symbolize that everything is backwards at the time of death,
- Tibet. Since there is a limited amount of land, Tibetans have a sky burial. This is where the body is carried by a friend to a burial site to be devoured by vultures.
- Madagascar. They view the funeral as a celebration and will dance at the gravesite.
