Death in the Kojiki Religion Vs The Christians of Ireland Every culture is different They all have their own beliefs customs and traditions But all people are the same We all are born live and die Every culture handles death a little differently Even though all cultures have differences all cultures share common beliefs and traditions with some other cultures All of us are also human and experience the same emotions when we deal with emotional situations like death But even though we all share the same emotions people in different cultures handle them differently The Christians of Irelands practices are similar to all other Christian burial practices When someone dies they are kept in a wake house which is traditionally the house where they lived and died Traditionally people placed salt on the bed which was believed to keep evil and ghosts away from the mourners People may still do this because it makes them feel more at ease even though they do not believe that it has any effect Candles are also placed around the bed Friends and family walk into the room where the dead is lying and say a prayer for their soul In Irish custom everyone shares a smoke of tobacco which was important to have at a wake It probably helped people be more at ease and be able to share their feelings and cope with their loss The friends and family of the deceased sit around and talk of how good of a person the deceased had been They also share all of their memories of the dead showing respect for and honoring the dead as they did They also talked so they would forget their sorrow The mourners later put the body in a coffin and carry it to the graveyard taking a long route This was done to fool the other ones fairies and the dead who have died before If anyone was walking along
