Description

This great series, new in paperback, introduces the wide variety of customs and traditions that feature in people's lives around the world. Each book describes the activities, beliefs and festivals that mark life events, seasons or other special times in cultures, ranging from the Far East to Europe. "End-of-Life Rituals" looks at beliefs and traditions related to death. Learn how the elaborate burial ceremonies of ancient cultures compare to the simple funerals of today's Islamic cultures. Find out about other festivals celebrating death, including the Mexican 'Dia de los Muertos' and the 'Hungry Ghost' festival where the Chinese entertain and feed the lonely spirits that no one cares about.
