A man got the shock of his life after walking into his own funeral instead of his birthday party.
Taking to his Twitter account, the man who is identified as Eli McCann said that his now hubby organised a surprise funeral for his 33rd birthday.
According to Eli's lover who is identified as Skylar, people should not have to die for their friends to gather and talk about how they love the dead.
"In 2017 my husband (then boyfriend) threw a surprise funeral for my birthday because “people shouldn’t have to die in order for their friends to gather and say why they loved them," wrote Eli.
The man said that his hubby advised guests to ignore him to make it look like he was a ghost.
"He instructed everyone to ignore me so it would be like I was a ghost visiting my own wake," added Eli.
In the hilarious tweet, the man shared photos from the big day. The set up was exactly like that of a burial with the photo of him next to a makeshift coffin.
The room was filled with dull colours to show that the people in there were mourning the loss of their loved one.
Seats were arranged in rows at the middle of the small living room where the party was set to go down.
In a separate tweet, Eli said that his mom helped Skylar make programs for the fake wake.
He admitted that his hubby melts his heart and especially when he does weird things to demonstrate his love.
"He melts my heart constantly, but especially when his expressions of love get weird," wrote the man.
Tweeps took to the comment section to express their thoughts and it is clear that many loved the birthday idea terming it creative.
It was reported of a four-year-old boy made his mom cry after surprising her with the most precious gift.
According to The Sun, the young boy saved all his pocket money to buy his mom a bunch of flowers.
The mommy identified as Katy Peacock was left emotional and took to Facebook to share the heart-melting gesture.
According to the emotional mom, her son had done various chores so as to earn the money.
Taking to the Facebook group, Family Lockdown Tips & Ideas, she showed off the huge bunch of red roses the little champ got her.
"Just wanted to share how sweet my four-year-old is. He went to the shop with his dad tonight and told me to close my eyes, he chose and bought these off his own back for me with his pocket money," reported The Sun.
