The words 'six feet under' is being implied to those people who passed away. But did you ever wonder why the lifeless people are being buried at a depth of six feet below the ground?
This all started at the time of 1655 in England. Bubinic Plague hit the area of London and the mayor gave a law on how people should deal with the burying of the dead bodies to prevent the virus from spreading out to the uninfected people. It was notified that the graves should be 'at least six feet deep'.
But nowadays, the laws are being altered since some of the states around the world has their own way of dealing with the measurement. Some just needed to be 18 inches soil on top of the coffins.
There is no universal measurement for the way that a dead body should be taken care of.
