Children attend birthdays, elders attend funerals [COMPACTIDEA]

I might be writing this as a COMPACTIDEA, but the idea itself isn't compact in its significance. I've frequently observed that while kids attend births and birthdays, their elders attend cremations and funerals. Philosophically this is so strange [and sad], and is one clear way in which a distinction can be drawn between younger and older humans.
