Today we had the first anniversary after death of my husband's mother.
On Anniversary Day, we hold a Buddhism ceremony.
Relatives gathered and listened to the Buddhist sutra that the priest read.
Then, we had lunch dinner all together.

In our region, as is often seen in the country side, women don't sit and eat lunch in the guest room with men.
Only in case the women's husband couldn't attend the ceremony, they sit in the guest room as the representatives of their family.
The rest of women eat lunch in another room next to the kitchen, because women have to work for cooking or serving.

After lunch dinner, we read Buddhist sutra all together for the deceased.And we share all offerings the relatives brought to front of the Buddhist altar.

That's our Anniversary ceremony.We commemorate the deceased like this and hope her sprit would be peaceful in another world.
