In Australia and New Zealand the wake commonly happens after the
funeral service in the absence of the body and is often "wet", which is
to say alcohol is served and as a result the wake often resembles a
party for the deceased as well as being of comfort for their family. In
this way it follows the model of the traditional Irish Wake (see:
Irish
Traditions) although there is a long tradition of feasting and
celebration connected with funeral service amongst the Māori of New
Zealand that predates European settlement.
