“Pink” is the New White!

In a month’s time, “Undas“(All Soul’s Day) will be celebrated in the Philippines. And in the Filipino culture, this public holiday is more than just remembering their dead. The occasion also serves as a family gathering and a reunion of sorts.

A Different Mourning

In a conservative, predominantly Catholic Asian society such as the Philippines, death and mourning is handled in a solemn natural way similar to most. Funerals are characterised by the traditional white coffins and surrounded by flowers with accompanying ceremonies fit for the dead.

But St. Peter Life Plan and Chapels thought that funerals need not always be sad. There should be options. There are people who do wish for a happy funeral instead. One one way of being able to do this is by putting some color into it.

Why not forgo of the usual plain white coffins and have a pink one instead? Why not, right? :)

They have offered this as an option in their list of memorial plans for several years now; in addition to their other equally well-known out-of-the box ideas such as the e-Burol (online viewing) and e-Libing (online interment).

To the unfamiliar, St. Peter Life Plan, Inc. is a Pre-Need DeathCare Company that offers affordable traditional memorial life plans to all segments of society. Since 1970, it has maintained its leadership and excelled in its role as DeathCare Experts in the DeathCare Services Industry through the continuous development of its wide range of memorial products and services attuned to the changing needs of Philippine society.
