Death has always been worth celebrating and fearing. As early as 60,000 BC, people buried their dead with rituals and ceremonies. The researchers even found evidence that Neanderthals used flowers to bury the dead, just like we do today. Many of the early tomb rituals and customs were meant to protect life by appeasing the souls that were thought to have caused this person to die. This ghost protection ritual and superstition vary widely with time and place and religious beliefs, but many are still in use today. It is believed that the habit of closing the eyes of the deceased began in this way, trying to close the “window” from the world of life to the spiritual world. Covering the face of the deceased with a piece of paper, from the pagan belief that the spirit of the deceased escaped from the mouth. In some cultures, the home of the deceased was burned or destroyed to prevent his spirit from returning; in other places, the door was unlocked and the window was opened to ensure that the soul could escape. In Europe and the United States in the 19th century, the deceased was first taken out of the house to prevent the spirit from returning to the house and summoning another family member to follow him, or he could not see where he was going and I could not return. The mirror is also covered, usually a black crepe, so the soul will not be trapped and cannot be passed to the other side. Family photos are sometimes face down to prevent the close relatives and friends of the deceased from being occupied by the spirit of the deceased. Some cultures push their fear of ghosts to the extreme. The early Saxons in England cut off the feet of the deceased, so the body could not walk. Some Aboriginal tribes took more unusual measures to cut off the head of the deceased and thought it would make the spirit busy looking for his head and worry about life.
