Funeral Customs

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

I was reading an article online recently about funeral customs. These weren’t the normal customs that we all know today, but some of the oldest known and some not so well known customs.
Neanderthol man was found to have some customs including being buried with antlers and flowers.
Some tribes in Tibet and Africa leave the body to rot in the woods for other animals to devour. Other tribes have been known to ground up the bones of the dead and include those in future meals.
Now, this may all seem very unusual to us. However, the point is that all of us have unique customs and rituals that help us grieve.
When you use your funeral website or funeral marketing program to potential families, this might be an opportunity for you to capitalize.
