A roast is something special; it is a form of art in a way. You express your feelings to someone in a different way than maybe you ordinarily would. When expressing your feelings, you can draw a picture or perform a song. You can tell your feelings in an extraordinary way. A roast is pretty much what you want to do, with no directions and no guidelines. Express yourself and let others help by expressing themselves. Have fun and enjoy.


Holding a roast can be sad, boring, fun, exciting, or even out-of-hand and crazy. A roast is pretty much about remembering someone or saying good-bye to someone.

There are many different ways of having a roast, and when having one you can do several different, unique things. Some ideas for having a roast are:

  • You could have a party and have everyone write something about the special person. Then you would read it aloud.

  • You could have people get pictures and memorabilia together about a certain person. Then put all of it into a photo album. It would be like a scrapbook. Then give it to that individual.

  • You could write a list of special things about someone. It could be a top ten countdown about things that the one special person has done that are outstanding to you.
