I am Irish Catholic and in my family wakes and funerals were always a big party to celebrate the person who died.  When I die I want a huge party, with live music and dancing and bagpipes, there have to be bagpipes.  And the men playing the bagpipes need to wear kilts. If I know I am going to die and have an idea when, I will have my wake and funeral before I die so that I can also enjoy it! And they will say “she danced at her own funeral”.  If I die suddenly, have the party and prop me up at a table with a smart cocktail like they do in New Orleans!
