A Zombie Ceremony to Celebrate the Dead
Families gather together in a ceremony of celebration. Their guests? Dead relatives that they've dug up and given a complete makeover. It is a zombie ceremony like no other.
The people dig up the bodies of their dead relatives before washing, grooming, fix their hair and dressing them up in fancy new clothes. Then they proudly display their dead relatives and parade the dead around the province.
They also replace and repair the coffins in a bid to stop the body from decomposing. Why go to all these lengths ?
In their culture, corpses aren't actually considered dead until a water buffalo is sacrificed to accompany them into the afterlife. For some families it takes years to be able to afford the expensive ceremony, so they take care of their loved ones until they can.
I'm sure glad that most of us choose to leave our dead to rest in peace.
