Party

A party is a gathering of people who have been invited by a host for the purposes of socializing, conversation, or recreation. A party will typically feature food and beverages, and often music and dancing as well.

Some parties are held in honor of a specific person, day, or event (e.g., a birthday party, a Super Bowl party, or a St. Patrick’s Day party). Parties of this kind are often called celebrations.

A party is not necessarily a private occasion. Public parties are sometimes held in restaurants, pubs, or bars, and people attending such parties may be charged an admission fee by the host.

Famous quotes containing the word party:

    This will not be disloyalty but will show that as members of a party they are loyal first to the fine things for which the party stands and when it rejects those things or forgets the legitimate objects for which parties exist, then as a party it cannot command the honest loyalty of its members.
    Eleanor Roosevelt (1884–1962)

    DORIS: Here’s the two of spades.
    DUSTY: The two of spades!
    THAT’S THE COFFIN!!
    DORIS: THAT’S THE COFFIN?
    Oh good heavens what’ll I do?
    Just before a party too!
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    Whether a party can have much success without a woman present I must ask others to decide, but one thing is certain, no party is any fun unless seasoned with folly.
    Desiderius Erasmus (c. 1466–1536)
