    So I'm going to keep this short, what are you guys thoughts of a funeral where everybody gets drunk and it's a party?

    That's sounds like the funeral of somebody who was well-hated.

    Bittersweet. Something about funerals leaves me cynical and morbid for a few days. But hey, being drunk as a farewell gift is pretty sweet.

    Personally I'd prefer a funeral like this. Why? I can't seem to collect my thoughts enough to post a reason, so I'll just leave it at this.

    Occasionally sad. But not if the person was an asshole, if he/she was then happy!

    My thoughts on this being my funeral: I would be too dead to care.

    Thoughts on attending this kind of funeral: sure, as long as drinks are on the estate. :P

    Not necessarily. An example would be my grandfathers funeral. While the funeral service itself was rather sad, we had a few chuckles while people recounted various tales and events that happened. At the lunch afterword it was a rather...interesting atmosphere. My whole family is catholic so they were all joyful that he was "in a better place", some were happy because of even more memories and such that were recited.

    I suppose what I'm saying is it depends on the family and how they handle it.

    Depends on the person really. If it's your great grandma, it's obviously pretty damn out of place and disrespectful to party at their funeral. Unless your great grandma is really cool.
    Assuming the person would WANT a funeral where people are partying, I don't see why not. Plenty of people have a "I want people to think my funeral was awesome" mentality these days.

    In GENERAL, funerals are usually pretty dreary. Even the happiness tends to be bittersweet. It also depends on who happens to be dead. It's obviously going to be a lot sadder if you're at, say, a 12 year old's funeral, as opposed to being at your 87 year old grandfathers funeral.

    Basically, I want to have a funeral where I'll have a bottles of liquor in all the seats, dope ass music playing, and people having a good time. The thing is people are all like "no! why would you even want such a thing?!"

    i think everyone should wear royal blue or navy blue - they calm people down and black just dominates greving on people so everyone shuts up, like conversate about the person that just died >_>

    I don't want anyone to mourn my death. I want people to celebrate the life I lived. My funeral of course would have booze, food and video games.

    I'd be terrific for people to be playing horror/suspense/zombie apocalypse games during a funeral :P

    Well, I think funerals are fine, but I want someone to do something cool with my body, like roll it down a hill... or mountain.

    Viewing/burial - sad with a few attempted parts to lighten the mood.

    Afterwards - most (the two) funerals I have been to have been a "party" afterwards. Nothing major, just the family and friends, with stuff like sandwiches, desserts, and alcohol. Lots, lots, and lots of alcohol. Granted, I was never (and still am not) old enough to drink, but I don't anticipate anyone dying within the next year. And if someone does, it isn't gonna stop me. But, I digress, the "party" afterwards isn't because the person was an asshole, it's (in my family, at least) it's a "going away" sort of thing (can't figure out how to word it better). Not to celebrate that they're dead, but, in a way, to celebrate their life. The fact that they DID live and have been with everyone. A way to lighten the mood, to show that even though they're gone, life carries on.

    When I die, I want a funeral like that. Everyone is going to be sad when they're at a funeral. Hell, when my... err... when my grandpa's friend died, who was the father of my mom's aunt's... sister's husband... I think... (fuck, I only met the guy a few times), I went to the funeral. I almost cried because it's so fucking sad. Afterwards, though, there was the celebration. There was food, people were drinking, that's what I want. Nobody is gonna be happy at it. Any happiness is forced happiness, but at least they're trying, which is what I would want. I would want those who were closest to me to still try to be happy even though I wasn't there anymore.

    Edit -
