Everytime I came to visit my home town, I like to visit my loves graves at the cemetary, this time I was surprise to find my ankle`s grave who has been dead for about 5 years, there was planty of fine salt around his grave, only his, my other relatives graves didn`t have any salt... My sister washed it with water, and my cousing was very scared about the whole situation, (my ankle's daugher), I have beeing seaching on the Net to see if I can find out what could it mean, but I am have no answers yet..
Any Ideas of what could it be, or if it means something?.

Flormarina, from what I've read, you have nothing to fear. Salt is used in many cultures for cleansing, purification and protection, and it's not uncommon to see salt sprinkled around graves in many parts of the world or being sprinkled on people after attending a funeral.

In some places, people sprinkle salt mixed with Holy Water on the doorstep of a new home to protect it and to prevent unpleasant persons--or spirits--from entering. Also, salt is not found in witches’ kitchens or at devils’ feasts because the Roman Catholic Church regards it as a hallowed substance. Christians recognize salt as a wholesome and essential article of diet, so they regard it as unsuitable for the use of devils and witches. Salt is also used to break the energy when ending a session with a talking board.

Perhaps your Tío has a friend who visits his grave and wishes to keep it safe from evil spirits.

Thank you very much for your reply, that's a relieve for me specially for his family :hug: My Tio was very fun of the supernatural and I know that he practice some kind of rituals, and got together with people who did too.
