Funerals are more about those people who are left behind than the deceased. It makes them feel better to give their loved one a good send off and begins the bereavement healing process. I'm with you and consider it really idiotic to dress up a corpse. It's a cadaver after all which is going to the earth or fire to be consumed. Often though we have special requests for our own funerals too, which others try to honour. But in fact you won't be there. Only the dead log that our bodies become after death, unknowing, unthinking, unfeeling. But it's actually very difficult to imagine yourself dead. I'd recommend you try it and then you'll see the depth of the difficulty.

It's a way of showing respect for the deceased.

Guilt. They think having an expensive funeral shows they loved the person.
