Remembering the Dead on Yambol Doors

Remembering the Dead on Yambol Doors
A memory of the dead is always present in Yambol. Many doors are a memorial to those who have past away. At 40 days after death and every anniversary thereon - These memorials are refreshed and sometimes decorated with flowers on such occasions. A reminder in December that most old people in Bulgaria pass away in the cold winter months.

I am never quite sure about similar "mementos" of the dead.

With a constant reminder of these poor souls it must make it difficult for the bereaved to move on.

I still remember dead family members and friends and of course in the UK I can visit a grave.

However as always I respect of peoples cultures and religions. A case of what works for you I guess.
