Disrespectful Teens Feasted on Offerings Meant for the Deceased in Cemetery
UNDAS FOODTRIP – A group of disrespectful teenagers faced online criticism after consuming offerings meant for the deceased.
In many cultures around the world, November 1 and 2 are dedicated to honoring and remembering the deceased. This tradition takes various forms, but one universal aspect is the offering of food to the departed souls.
This practice reflects the belief that the souls of the departed return during these days to visit their living family members. Offering food is a symbol of hospitality and love for the spirits, ensuring they are well-fed and taken care of during their visit.
The types of food offerings and the customs associated with them vary from one culture to another.
In the Philippines, families gather in cemeteries and bring traditional dishes like suman, bibingka, and pansit to the graves of their loved ones. They share meals with their deceased family members and offer prayers.
It is a touching way to keep the memory of loved ones alive. It is a time for reflection and remembrance, providing an opportunity for families to come together and share their stories and experiences.
Recently, the Facebook page “Good Vibes” shared video footage of a group of teenagers consuming offerings meant for the deceased in a cemetery. The video quickly went viral on social media and received negative feedback from the online community.
In the video, the group members started to ransack various tombs and distributed the goods they had gathered. After a few moments, the young people happily feasted on the collected offerings.
Some of the teenagers even laughed while consuming the goods, without considering the feelings of the families of the deceased.
The online community criticized the young people for their disrespectful and inappropriate behavior. However, some netizens argued that the food should be eaten rather than go to waste.
Internet users expressed their reactions to the video:
