coin or pearl

sorry i dont know if this is the right place to post. if not, please remove it.

my grandma passed away few weeks ago... so while we were having the wake, she was lying on the coffin with the make up and the "shou yi"

they also put a ten cents coin in between her lips. the coin is sticking out.

my friend's grandma had a pearl instead.

do anyone know what does that mean?

Re: coin or pearl

Re: coin or pearl

含口
死者沐浴穿戴后,必须在口中放物,称“含口”,含口按其阶级地位和贫富状况而定。后来民间将此俗演变为含银 、含铜、含棒等,如用红纸包一块银角放人死者口中,也有用红纸包金或银制的圆形管,塞人死者口中,包钱者称 “含口钱”,包金、银者称“含口劲”。也有在死者口中放饭者,称“含口饭”,俗信死者口中必须含饭人殓,这 样到阴间才不会挨饿。
