Eating at funerals
I just don’t get it. Is it me or everyone just seems to be looking for any available opportunity to wine and dine.
I expect that when one is laid to rest, the atmosphere should be one characterized by sober reflections and mourning.

What I expect –
1. A brief biography of the deceased.
2. Words of fortitude from the officiating priest to the family of the deceased and those present.
5. Payment of tribute by sympathizers.
Ps: I know there’s something called ‘celebration of life’ for those who have lived a life worthy of emulation and died at a good age.
However, I feel a different day should be set aside for that. Not turning funeral ceremonies into birthday parties of some sort.
