The funeral feast is an integral part of the lifetime of our loved ones. A farewell dinner is a moment when a fellow traveler wins family members, friends and relatives together. Often there are special banquets for this purpose with a selected menu and even the most personalized event among the wealthiest people.
The funeral feast is in most cases just after the funeral ceremony, when all the participants of the ceremony go to the banquet hall or the special room where the meal and the last moments of the late remembrance are intended to be served or rented.
Banquet halls are chosen according to the number of people, the menu and individual requirements for the geographical location and interior.
The price range for this service is very wide, ranging from modest celebrations to the closest people to a large-scale meal between family members, friends, relatives, colleagues, and so on. Banquets of this kind are organized in Latvia by simple cafes, guest houses and recreation centers, where the possibilities for subordinating the event are considerably wider, but the greater proportion of service providers providing the public with this service is precisely funeral offices that collect all related services, including farewell organizing a meal.
Although today's understanding of the funeral service has changed for years, some of the nuances have historically remained unchanged, for example, unlike today, in ancient times a farewell meal was organized before the dead were laid on the womb.
