Celebration Of Life Vs. Funerals
Many funeral services adhere to a set style. The service includes traditional eulogies, hymns, and prayers, and it follows a very predictable format. The main aim of holding a funeral service is to give comfort to the deceased's family members. A traditional funeral service, on the other hand, does not really fulfill this function, and most people only go through the process.
Many individuals are eager for more meaningful funeral service options and it’s where a celebration of life fits in. It's an innovative way to have a funeral. At Tindall Funeral Home, we have seen that family members find it provides them much more comfort and solace compared to a traditional funeral service.
Differences Between A Celebration Of Life And A Standard Funeral Service
A celebration of life differs from a funeral in many ways, including:
- The atmosphere at the gathering is more celebratory than solemn.
- It can take place indoors or outside, and it does not have to take place in a funeral home.
- The event's procedure differs greatly from that of a traditional burial.
- The remains of the deceased may or may not be there.
- It's a simple and casual event.
- A celebration of life can be conducted at any time and not necessarily immediately post a person's demise.
- A life celebration has no religious connotations.
- A celebrant will manage the ceremony, and no religious leaders will be present.
- The aim of a celebration of life is to remember the deceased and share cherished memories and stories about the loved one.
- This event can be held in whatever way you choose, with no set agenda.
- There are no codes to follow and no formal rituals to perform, allowing you to concentrate on healing.
