Three Funerals and a Wedding

It's not exactly movie material, but it seems to be the direction my life is headed. It used to be graduations, weddings and babies. I definitely liked that better. Sitting in church in uncomfortable "funeral clothes" and weeping into one's hankie, can't compete with sipping lukewarm punch, nibbling tiny tea sandwiches and oohing and aahing over gifts.

According to Brad Edmondson (what a jolly job he has) most of US deaths occur during Winter, with January being the winner. Avoid January 3rd. It is the busiest day for deaths and assures that you will not get the full attention of the embalmer. March and April are not far behind, so they may eventually win out as the death destination month.

If you are like me, you might be avoiding the eventuality altogether, so just live large in September, June, August and May. If your looking for a specific day to go skydiving, try July 22, as death rates are 10% below average.
