death- rite of passage

Death is a biological reality, while the physical death of the human body does not mean a death of the spirit and the soul, but a release from its temporary package.
In the ethnographic area of Botosani, the funeral ritual is fulfilled based on ancient traditions and is considered a moral and social duty.
Beliefs and practices related to the burial are many and varied, with several aspects of local feature but also with a great number of common elements across the country. The burial traditions in Botosani area show essentially a dignified position of the simple human facing death. Belief in the afterlife is embodied in the care of the deceased’s family to provide all the necessary for the road of no return (money on the dead person’s chest, wake, chicken given at the tomb „for the soul of the deceased”, etc.)
