One of the pressing needs of time is a proper funeral for those, who are accursed by all!
(H.L. Mencken, Prejudices, Sixth Series)
There are things that should not be done near a cemetery and in a cemetery:
Do not point your finger at the grave (because the finger will rot).
Cars on the funeral procession should not be counted.
There are also things, which should be done:
You should bury your loved one in the southern part of the cemetery (for it is a more holy land).
If possible, a funeral should be organized on a rainy day (because then the soul of the deceased will go to heaven).
If you shudder, it means, that someone is passing through the place, where your tomb will be.
