somewhat of a dilemma, what is the proper protocol for what to wear when you're the center of attention at a cremation?
Going by what I've seen on Six Feet Under
, you won't be the center of attention during the cremation proper. If you have an open casket, your funeral home will make you up all pretty and drive you off to the oven after the ceremony. If you have a closed casket, it won't matter what you wear. Either way, your cremation usually won't be going to be what some American-Indian, Indian-Indian and the ancient Germanic people have. Unless you specifically want it, people probably won't see you burn in the crematory. And when you come out of it, your survivors get your urn. So, if you have any grand-children, and if you want to bequeath them an urn that goes "clonk" when they shake grandpa, make sure to wear a nice, metallic belt buckle. Other than that, who cares?
EDIT: Got it. Cardbord urn over the bridge. So it's definitely a matter of "who cares?"
