Here’s Why 2023 Might Be a Funeral Game Changer | FFFW #118

Welcome to 2023! Is anyone else already okay with it? Like, January 1st already feels so long ago- I’m here for it. Sometimes getting used to a new year feels like breaking in a pair of shoes; to me, this week has felt like my favorite grass cutters.

Anyway, I made a few resolutions for the FFFW, and because this is OUR thing, I figured I’d share them with you.

1)  Use even more gifs of puppies. There are no negatives to this.
2) Use the word “Hullaballoo” at least a couple of times3) Continue to create a little bit of levity every Friday for you hardworking peeps in the funeral space!

Let’s get to it!

Fridays till Christmas: 50

Predictions for 2023 in the Funeral Space

1) 60+ aged funeral directors will continue to wear suits that are a size too large.

2) Golden doodle grief dogs (which are just AI-generated puppet mutts)  will become feral. This will make funeral homes consider getting grief pets that actually have a personality.

3) Gen-Z will start using the term “embalmed” as some sort of slang. This will create a slight uptick in traditional burial rates. You know- just for the joke of it.

There you go. Prove me wrong.
