Is it proper to wear pink to a funeral?
People need to dress in such a way that respects the dead person and his or her family. Another point of view: These days it is much more acceptable for people to wear more colorful clothing to a funeral, just as people are now wearing jeans to church. While I wouldn't wear anything that isn't appropriately modest for the occasion, and although I personally prefer to wear darker, more conservative clothing to funerals, I wouldn't think less of a person who wore pink to one. It's just a matter of personal preference. A Third Point of View: To wear pink, or any other pastel or bright color - the colors of rejoicing - to a funeral would be an effective way to communicate to those present that you are delighted at the death of their loved one. It would be hard to imagine anything in worse taste. MY opinion: -if you want to impress someone you have to think in two ways: 1. black and conservative or 2. trendy and stylish so wear a black sexy dress and add your own touches such as add a cardigain or a cute dark belt that way to a stylish and not wearing pink

Answer . A dress uniform is appropriate at a funeral.
1. Dress-code. In Hindu tradition one dresses down for a funeral.The traditional colour of mourning is white so one should attend acremation dressed in simple white clothes - …the close femalerelatives should have their hair loose - not tied back. 2. Impurity. Everything associated with death and dying is rituallypolluting therefore one should if possible wash one's hands andfeet and sprinkle water on one's head before leaving the cemetery.One should have a shower immediately upon returning home and theclothes that were worn to the cremation are immediately washed. 3. No food or drink is consumed until the post cremation bathinghas taken place. 4. Those attending a Hindu funeral should not bring flowers oranything else with them - one comes empty-handed. 5. One should not exchange greetings with the official mourners,one can nod in sympathy, hug or touch but not ask after theirwellbeing - the least said the better. 6. One bids farewell to the deceased by either offering flowersinto the open coffin or pouring some grains of rice over the mouthof the deceased. 7. The coffin is circumambulated in an anti-clockwise direction 8. If one is younger than the deceased then one should prostrate. 9.

Answer Absolutely, as long as the parents respected and supported the child's choice to enter. If the parents were against the child's entry into the service, it is highly in…napropriate. Answer I don't see why not. Maybe that person is extremely proud of his or her uniform and they are hoping that their parent has gone to heaven and can see them in their uniform. We really never know what's going on in a child's head, give them a bit of space and don't pick on them for what they decided to wear. They lost a parent or parents and it's not right for someone to question what they chose to wear. Instead of questioning them, why not try being there for them as they are going to need lots of love and understanding. Further point It may vary from culture to culture. In Britain military uniform is acceptable just about anywhere for any occasion. Further Further Point The child may not have any other formal clothing for such an occasion and really the child is perhaps doing what they think would most honor their parent's memory. If the Child has not yet graduated from basic training they may be required to wear that particular uniform.

Here is an example of a Buddhist ceramony; . A funeral is an opportunity to cement social bonds and to revitalize the Japanese economy through vast expenditures on wall-to-wa…ll lilies and lacquered mortuary tablets. Funeral participants-customers, co-workers or students of family members and members of neighborhood associations-often have only tenuous links to the deceased, but they join the ritual to show respect to the family. . Mourners are invited to attend one or both of two events: an evening wake (tsuya) held one or two days after the death, and a funeral held in the late morning or early afternoon of the following day. Funeral attire is strictly prescribed: Men wear black suits, white shirts and black ties. Women don black dresses or dress-jacket ensembles, accessorized by a discreet string of pearls, and black hose, shoes and bag. . No earrings, rhinestones, or exposed navels, please. . For Buddhist rites you'll also need a rosary, a string of 108 beads to hold in your left hand; at Shinto rites you'll be given a leafy sakaki branch to present as an offering to the deceased. . If asked to attend a Buddhist funeral rite, first determine if koden, or monetary gifts, are accepted. . If so, you must prepare a black-beribboned envelope for the money (don't use new bills). The amount will range from 3,000 yen up, depending upon your relationship with the deceased. When you first arrive at the home, temple or funeral home where the funeral will be held, find the appropriate reception area, which may be labeled ``Neighbors, ``Company, or ``Ordinary Public.'' Bow to the receptionist and present your business card with both hands, with the words facing the receiver, or write your name and address in Japanese. . At this time, if appropriate, present the koden. . You will then queue to pray before a black-framed photograph of the deceased. The usual rule here, as with most rituals, is to simply mimic the behavior of the person in front of you. To be safe, the following is a general guide to funeral practice. . When your turn comes, proceed to an incense holder set before the altar. Stop and bow deeply to the mourning family. With your right hand, pick up a pinch of the grainy incense from the receptacle on the right, lift it up to eye level, and deposit it in the metal incense burner beside it. If the funeral is crowded, do this just once; if not, repeat once or twice. . Now gaze upon the photo and bow deeply with the rosary draped over both hands to pray for the repose of the deceased's soul. Finally, bow to the family once more and exit slowly, remembering to also bow before the chief mourners standing at the side. . As you leave, you will be handed a wet cloth to wipe your hands and a small gift, typically something for household use or a gift certificate. . If you wish, you may then sit in attendance as the priest recites Buddhist sutras. After the ceremony's conclusion, you will bow again as the deceased and family members depart for the crematorium in a procession of black cars flanking an ornately lacquered hearse. . As you leave the funeral, you will also receive a tiny package of salt with which to dust your shoulders before crossing your threshold to prevent evil spirits from invading your home.
