The dancing coffin meme explained

These dancing pallbearers have become a meme and a symbol of the quarantine. But in Ghana, these dancers really do turn funerals into parties. 🇬🇭

    In Bretagne (France) it was also tradition to shake the coffin as much as possible. This was believed to disorientate the soul of the dead person so it would not come back and haunt the living. In Friesland (the Netherlands) for the same reason they used to carry the coffin three times around the grave.

    It started in Nigeria. My grand parents were buried this way. This dance is to celebrate the life of the deceased and to welcome them into the kingdom of god. This isn't a time of sorrow but a time of joy.

    I think these guys are awesome, a funeral should be a celebration of the life once lived.
