影片对白  You're watching a football game at a funeral?

文化面面观  Traditional Funerals in contemporary North America

 

Luncheon

In many traditions, a meal or other gathering following the burial service, either at the decedent's church or another off-site location.

Etiquette

Etiquette dictates the bereaved and other attendees at a funeral wear semi-formal clothing-such as a suit and tie for men or a dress for women-in a darker color (usually, gray, dark blue or black). Wearing short skirts, low-cut tops, or, at Western funerals, a large amount of white (other than a button-down shirt or blouse, or a military uniform) is often seen as disrespectful. Women who are grieving the death of their husband or a close partner sometimes wear a veil to conceal the face, although the veil is not common now.

It is a distinct rudeness to leave a mobile telephone on audible mode at a funeral service, as its ringing automatically interrupts the service.

Memorial services

Increasingly, traditional funerals are being replaced by memorial services. These are often less formal than a traditional funeral, and include such things as eulogies, music and fellowship. A member of the clergy often participates in these services, usually to open and close the proceedings and offer prayers and a brief message of comfort.
