The Fifth Seventh

Well, the mourning period is over.

Since I arrived my relatives had pretty much been preparing for the fifth seventh, when we invite my grandmother's soul to eat, wash her face, and basically be comfortable in the home again. Our relatives came from different cities in China to be at the house in Shanghai. The night before the 29th, we prepared a meal and invited our grandmother to come in for the meal we prepared her; then we bowed and lit incense, and went outside and burned some of her clothes. We also burned some letters

Well, this is too personal. I shouldn't keep going.
