Oh my god! There is a red envelope 🧧 emoji 😮😮😮
This is the envelope. It is flat, but something is in it.
I suppose I could open it, but I kinda want to save it for when I really need good luck, good health or prosperity.
For now, I just want to cherish it. ❤️✌️
What a beautiful thought – I want Chinese traditions when I die… my catholic ones are just sad and heavy. I find the catholic ones hard … really hard!! Very very sad and heart breaking 💔
But the Chinese traditions… sending your loved one away with things they enjoyed in life, that had meaning, or would make them comfortable in after life… that is just such a beautiful thought!!! I would feel more at ease like that!! There was not a extreme heaviness – and the way they honored the death was incredible! I really have never experienced! Was all new to me!!
And I had never heard of giving anything to guests at a funeral other than prayer cards or memorial cards
I love that it is red and gold. Shows class and is beautiful – is just how I am seeing through my eyes as an outsider to their rituals
Just made a big impression on me.
I am changing what I want when I die!! By the time I die… I’m gonna have all these rituals from all different cultures and the funeral home is going to be like “WTF” lol
We accommodate anything anyone wants or believes. However they want it. We have had many different kinds – but this one impressed me.
Usually funerals are just funerals – losses… but this one was different – there was love and care involved and remembrance and send off. It was more than just a funeral for loss? I can’t really put it in the right words??
I’ve seen documentaries about China … and the first emperor and his terra-cotta army
I do find history fascinating – and same thing with the Egyptians … buried with items for the after life or a better transition… I just like that thought ❤️ even if it’s just a thought – I like that one. They die and leave with things people place that have meaning
I find it comforting for both… comforting so that the one who dies will be honored …and then also comforting for those left behind, to know their loved one be taken care of always ❤️ yeah I like that a lot!
And a little note or envelope or candy- whatever – in honor of the deceased
Yeah I really liked the entire thing! I don’t really care if there is an afterlife or not… I love the thought and the care ❤️ their beliefs are beautiful!!
Anyway so that’s my envelope
