Everything is changing regarding how a person's life is celebrated after they have passed away. People are even planning their own parties to take the place of a regular funeral for them. Some people are deciding to not even have a celebration of life event for after they have passed away and making it happen before they pass away.
Funeral directors are being taught how to create a more festive atmosphere for their clients. Is it just me or is this like mixing oil and water? You tell me who is more into personalizing events and making them fun. A funeral director or an event planner? You know what my answer is going to be.
There are so many logistics to take care of when planning a Celebration of Life Event as with any event. You need a venue, food and anything else that creates a one-of-a-kind celebration.
There is one thing that I hope never happens. I hope we never see a competition of people wanting to outdo what other people have done for Celebration of Life Events. The focus should be about honoring a life. The best parts of that person's life.
Last but not least! There's a good possibility that you are thinking the same thing that others have expressed to me about our name Greatest of Days! Some of said, "You should change your name!" At first this made me cringe thinking of all that that would entail. I didn't have to think about it too long before I realized that it really is the perfect name. The exact thing that Celebrations of Life should be focusing on are the greatest of days in that person's life! Isn't that why people want this event in the first place? That's what we intend to do for family and friends who step up and honor their loved one.
Wishing you the greatest of days.
