It's only NATURAL at this time of year for our thoughts to turn to issues of DEATH and MORTALITY. Of course, we can use this contemplative impulse to wax philosophical about PROFOUND matters . . .
. . . OR we can take a more LIGHT-HEARTED approach to the whole area.
WHY must funerals always be such GLOOMY affairs? Use your creativity, people! Inject some FUN into the proceedings . . . serve CAKE, at the very least. EVERYONE loves cake.
Give some THOUGHT to how you want to lighten things up, even if it's only just to TWEAK the traditional ceremony a wee bit.
Or maybe you should consider going FULL-OUT GONZO CRAZY! Make your funeral an EVENT! One that people will talk about for YEARS!
If nothing else, take out a BILLBOARD!
WATER burials are an option for some.
Hmm, this looks LEGIT.
Whatever method you choose, may LOTS of people come to your party . . . I mean, funeral.
And DON'T forget to have fun with your post-funeral MEMORIALS too!
