say hi to the 12 apostles

Just got back from yet another roadtrip
to celebrate my grandmother's 40 days
we have this tradition where
the soul doesn't leave the earth
until the 40th day
we do all kinds of stuff
like reinacting (sp?) the last supper
using 12 children
we lay out some food
so while the older people pray
the kids start eating

i asked my aunts why
we have to do that
and none of them knows
which is pretty ironic
considering we've been doing
this every time someone dies

i think sometimes religion
is really ridiculous
we just follow blindly
whatever tradition we have
without stopping and asking,

"What's the use?"
