    BBQ At Graveyard

    Graveyard BBQ

    http://www.croatiantimes.com/
    Gypsies gave a relative a good send off after staging a BBQ and knocking back bottles of beer and wine at a cemetery in the village of Lunca in Iasi in north eastern Romania.

    Local media said the local Orthodox Christian priest had known about the unorthodox party - and that it was not the first time that the graveyard grill up had taken place in "honour of the dead".

    In Romania food and drink is often taken to the cemetery and left at the graveside as an offering to the dead especially around the Easter period. Church officials even allow the symbolic food offerings to be taken by poorer members of the community, so eating in cemeteries is part of the Romanian culture.

    But allowing the poor to stage a full on BBQ has taken the trend to a new level.

    Pictures showed empty beer bottles left on the grave side memorials, and several smoke-shrouded grills were set out on which pork chops and sausages were being grilled.

    A local church spokesman said: "I am sure that the dead did not object to having a bit of life around for a while." But Orthodox leaders are said to be looking at the case to see if such events should be banned in the future.

    LOL....nice one Mary.

    It may seems strange to us, however many cultures bring food to cemeteries to honor their loved ones....a BBQ, why not. It's all about intent isn't it?

    That's cool! I like the idea of celebrating a person's life by having a good time instead of sitting around mourning and grieving!








    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." ~ Ronald Reagan
