Sacrifices on Our Way to School

As I walked to my kids to school, I happened upon this.  It's a fairly common scene to see the remnants of a sacrifice offered the night before.  Noodles, fruit, and paper replicas are burned as a gift for the deceased family members in the afterlife. 

 Earlier this year, I wrote about how many people are now giving ipads to their ancestors.  I'm not sure what was burned here, but it breaks my heart every time to see the pile of offerings so hopefully given.
