What Is a Wake?
A wake is a visitation with the deceased that traditionally involves a vigil beside his or her casket. It is a time for family and friends to come together before the funeral ceremony. The wake is an opportunity for loved ones to pay their respects to both the deceased and his or her family. The wake can be held at a funeral home, a house, a church, a community center, or outdoors.
