Considerations in Planning a Reception
A wake could be a celebration where your friends and relatives share food and drink, memories, prayers, readings, blessings, farewells, songs, tributes, and toasts. It supports a tradition of family and friends staying awake with the deceased overnight until the body is buried, so as to back the omens. A wake can occur at reception, at a mortuary, or in a rented hall.
