    Hello. The meaning of this expression is that nobody asked you for your opinion in a certain issue. "Nadie te dio vela en este entierro". Hope that I helped you.

    Que quiere decir "Sin vela en el entierro"

    El ahora detenido no tenia vela en el entierro como vulgarmente se dice, pues tanto el ahora occiso como el proprietario de la camioneta afectada ya habian llegada a un arreglo sobre el pago de los danos........

    "Sin vela en el entierro" quiere decir que la persona no tenia nada que ver con lo que estaba pasando. :D

    no candle in this funeral, no fish to fry here, no stake in this business, .

    The defendant now under arrest had no business messing with this affair, to speak colloquially, since the deceased and the owner of the truck involved had already arrived at an agreement on the payment of damages....

    Aquí se dice que alguien no tiene velas en el entierro (ej: a mi no me eche la culpa, que yo no tengo velas en ese entierro!)
