What's the difference between a funeral repass and a repast?

Let me ask you a question "What is the meal after a funeral called?" Did I hear you say repass or repast? The terms ‘repast’ and ‘repass’ are often used interchangeably, however, the correct term is typically repast, which means, “the act or time of taking food” according to Webster. Repast sounds like “repass” when said out loud, so many people use these terms interchangeably. In general, if you've been invited to a repast or repass, you've been invited to a post-funeral gathering with food and drinks to remember the deceased.

What is a Repass

A repast after the funeral. When the funeral is over, what follows is the funeral reception, which is also known as the repast. Generally, the repast, or repass, is a gathering that follows a funeral service and is often when food is served. it is less formal than the funeral itself.  Funeral repass is a long tradition to honor the deceased before sending them off for good. It can be either private or open only to the closest family and friends. Alternatively, an invitation can be made available to anyone interested in attending.

What happens at a repass funeral

At the repast is a time to eat, offer condolences, and celebrate not only life itself but also the life of the recently deceased. However, It's also a time for the family to start the healing process.  Generally, People typically make toast and say extra words about their loss. Give the family sympathy for the deceased. Losing a friend or a family member can be hard, but a repast is designed to help you start the process of moving on, as well as help you deal with the loss.

Tips for repassing funeral hosts

  • Consider A budget. If the loved one doesn't have life insurance which will pay for things like the funeral and repass, then the family will have to come up with the money. If the family is experiencing financial difficulties, they may request a donation to help cover the costs.
  • Choose a funeral reception hall. A repast tends to be a casual affair. The funeral home can be a convenient option, freeing you from preparing for guests or cleaning up afterward. But you can, of course, host the repast at home. Some families like to gather at a park, where they can be outside and the kids can play.
  • Decide whom to invite. You can open the repast to anyone or invite only close family and friends. It’s entirely up to you. If you’d like to invite everyone, ask your funeral director to announce during the service where you’re going to gather. If you plan to hold a more private meal, send out invitations via text or email.
  • Ask for help. Planning a service for a deceased family member is very difficult to do while mourning yourself. There’s no need to plan a repast by yourself. Instead, allow family and friends to assist you with the help. They will feel useful at a time when they may not be sure how to help. Your funeral director is always available to assist, too.
  • What to bring - besides the food, Generally You can bring things like photos of the decease to the memorial service. Some small items that represent the loved one his or her favorite hat or team.
  • Types of food - At a funeral repast, the food and drink are typically buffet styles, with finger foods. A repass is defined as “the taking of food, as a meal”, therefore the food is a very central part of a funeral repast. Depending on the tradition of the religion, there may be wine and beer served too. The food is also heavily dependent on the religious requirements of the funeral. For example, if you’re attending a Jewish funeral, there will not be food containing pork.
  • what music to play - It's very common at the memorial service to hear the deceased favorite music at this time. Whether it's Hip Hop or Reggae you will hear it. Also, you might see some people grab the mic at this time to sing the music
