Frugal Funerals Via the Chinese


Interested in a frugal and environmentally sound funeral?  Take a look of government policies coming out of China.  Traditional funerals are quite elaborate; monks praying around the clock, banquets, fireworks, and more.  Many families apparently go into debt honoring the dead, and the Chinese government wants to put a stop to it.

I am frugal, but I certainly would prefer frugality to be a choice rather than a government mandate!
