Yes actually, but it is a normal defense mechanism to laugh in sad and tragic moments! Atleast that is what i have read somewhere!
Yes, but it wasn't until years later I recognized how inappropriate it was. I was 15 and it was my mom's funeral. I was to live with my aunt, uncle and two cousins. My cousin, Bob, was 13 and we sat together and poked, prodded, and snickered through the service.
I did it because I was very aware that all eyes were on me that day to see how I would survive the loss (only child, dad already dead). And I was going to show everyone I was okay. I survived okay but am really ashamed at how I acted that day.
No, we always laugh at family funerals when we reminisce about the person that died. The crazy things they may have done or said. Things like that.
Its more like laughing and crying at the same time. You laugh because of the story that is being told and it takes you back to that particular moment and your tears are coming out at the same time because you won't experience that again with the person that passed.
Yes, laughing is my nervous reaction to any kind of stress, so I've been fighting down laughter at every funeral I've ever been to. So far it's only ever actually gotten out twice -- and one of those times, my infant son (I didn't have anywhere else to leave him at the time) started blowing raspberries and that set me off. I leave as fast as I can when that happens, but kind of hard for people not to notice.
Why would anyone find anything humerous about a funeral. I find this question alarming.
It is not embarrassing to laugh at a funeral! A funeral is a last call, a celebration of a life lived well (if it was). It is not meant to be all tears and depression.
My father taught us to have a sense of humor in life, and when he died, we reminisced with stories of him in our eulogies that brought laughter as well as tears. We will never forget him, and we are happy to have shared this last tribute to him.
@Rosemary Banks...Why do you find this alarming?
