Plan Your Epitaph Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is April 6 or November 2
Plan Your Epitaph Day is a day is a little bit morbid for my liking. My first thought was who would create this day? And, why? I don't want to think about it, let alone plan it.
When you stop to think about it, maybe it's best if you do it. You never know what a relative or friend may put on your tombstone once you're gone. Or, worse still, what if they "don't" say anything?
While we're young, we think this is a long ways away. As we age, and get wiser, more of us consider getting directly involved with our epitaph, as well as all of the details of our demise.
So, if you need a little nudge to plan your epitaph, let today be the day.
Heard at the Funeral Parlor: "At my funeral, take the bouquet off of the casket and throw it into the crowd, to see who is next."
