Plan Your Epitaph Day is a weird fun holiday celebrated on April 6 of every year. The day is allotted to plan your inscription to be made on your tomb or a grave after being buried. Everybody or everything that is born into this world must die one day, so taking that reality to mind plan your epitaph. This day need not be a day of sorrow or grief; you can spend some time figuring out what you desire to say to the world when you are gone. There are many peculiar inscriptions on tombstone history. So make sure your inscription is unique, thoughtful, and speaks your heart out. Not many get to plan their epitaph, so seise some time to plan yours before it’s too late.
“I always thought I’d like my own tombstone to be blank. No epitaph, and no name. Well, actually, I’d like it to say figment.” – Andy Warhol
History of Plan Your Epitaph Day
Plan Your Epitaph Day is believed to be created by Lance Hardie in 1995. Hardie aimed to make sure that one takes control of planning their epitaphs. He thinks that those are a few crucial words that tell others about the one who lies in the grave. This day can be fun planning our last words with some fellow mates.
