 MOURNING COLORS

In Western cultures, it would be unusual for a person to wear any color other than black to symbolize mourning. The fact that black is actually the absence of visible color clearly demonstrates the feeling of loss and emptiness that most people feel when they have lost a loved one. On the other hand, in Eastern cultures, people wear white mourning clothes as symbols of purity and rebirth. White contains all the wavelengths of visible light, making this color a fitting symbol among Buddhists as a sign of hope that the deceased will be reborn. While red is strictly forbidden at funerals in China because it represents happiness, South African mourners wear red as a sign of shed blood.

A funeral is a meaningful event that can help ease the pain of separation that naturally accompanies death. It is a time of sharing good memories and experiences with family and friends. It is a time when respect, concern, and appreciation for a life that has been lived can be expressed in a sincere manner.
