Birthdays are supposed to be joyous occasions, where you gather your friends and family and celebrate your continued existence on planet Earth for yet another orbit of the sun.

Mila Blatova from Nizhni Novgorod, Russia, decided to do things a differently this year, however. Instead of celebrating the milestone of reaching her 30th birthday, she instead decided that it was a time for a funeral wake to commemorate the passing of the most precious gift of all, her youth.

“My idea came from not wanting to leave my 20’s and acknowledge that I’m now ‘old,’ Mila told UNILAD. “It was meant to be a funny way of accepting a new chapter in my life, the extreme drama in my 30th anniversary photo was me channeling Kris Jenner in a meme I saw of her.”

“I was looking for a dark twist on being boujee and super dramatic on my birthday.”

As you can probably tell by the photos, Mila does like to stand out from the crowd and drama pulses through her veins. Despite burying her beloved youth 6 feet under in a funeral, there are no signs of decay. She lives her life to the full and has vowed to own the fact that she’s now turning 30 by “having new adventures, traveling, taking care of my two little boys, and whatever else my life brings me.”

And her advice to anyone else nervously approaching the big 3-0? “Make the most of it and don’t be afraid of still having fun regardless of you getting old.”

Well, we still cannot decide if Mila’s party idea shows her fantastic sense of humor or is it grim and insensible. Anyways, scroll down to see the pictures for yourself and read the thoughts that the Internet had on Mila’s funeral soiree theme.

What better way to celebrate entering your 30’s than to hold a ‘funeral for your youth’?
