Vera Lucia da Silva stages her own funeral

Vera Lucia da Silva claims that being dead for one day was the best day of her life.

The 44-year-old reportedly received consent from her husband to join in the celebration of the Day of Dead in South American.

The funeral ceremony was held on Wednesday, November 2, at a funeral home in Camocim, with all her friends and family in attendance.

Vera said, "I wanted to hold my own funeral 14 years ago. I've waited a long time and can't believe that at last this wish has been granted.

"When I invited my friends and family they thought I was joking and they didn't take it seriously.

"Being dead was the best day of my life."

Vera obviously had a blast playing dead for one day and recorded it all.
