This tradition of funeral strippers started in Taiwan started in the 1980s to attract mourners. This tradition has been following for many years in China's rural areas. It is believed that at the time of the funeral, more people take part in the diseased funeral ceremony after seeing these dancers. Basically, these times the dancers are hired to attract more people. It is believed that the grander the procession, the greater the honour for the dead.
