  • Yes, and tacky. If they live in the upstairs or something and want to decorate their personal space fine. But the funeral home is for greiving relatives. It should not be decorated imo.

  • I would think it okay for any business to decorate in a Fall style (leaves, etc) but not specifically businesses (one's that do not sell Halloween merchandise). Not because it is tacky, but because you cater your business to different minorities and such and some people do not celebrate Halloween. The same goes for other holidays too.

  • No, I think it's a good idea for funeral homes to decorate for the seasons....Death is a fact of life, and in our culture we want to deny it, so sometimes funeral places try not to stand out....almost "hide", and I don't think that is necessarily healthy....

  • I personally don't think they should decorate for any holiday. lol. I mean, what if one of my relatives died around Christmas time? Would I want to see a Christmas tree near their casket? No thanks.

  • I would say that it's fine for them to decorate with pumpkins, scarecrows, that kinda thing. But...not anything morbid or dealing with death or ghosts and all that. I don't think that would be appreciated by grieving families.
