When I was a little kid, my concept of party is really very simple. When my parents buy me a cake and ice cream for my birthday, that is already a party for me. Then as I was growing up, the standards on what to call a party also changed. Balloons were added. Then there were hired mascots and clowns. Then magicians perform after the clowns.
When I became a young adult, there were no more partying for me. We had limited resources and so we allot our money to what matters most – our education and the food on the table. But I was cool with that. I continued to attend parties of classmates and old friends, especially those who celebrated their debut with a bang! It is really fun to attend debuts because you are allowed to party all night with someone who looks like those Texas D.J.’s playing really good music to liven up the night. Of course aside from all the dancing, there is also the flowing food and drink. Now it made me think that I should be really grateful to my parents for allowing me to attend those parties.
Some of my friends and classmates celebrated their debut like that, the traditional parting with the complete program. Some opt to buy something instead of throwing a huge and grand party, like a car or a laptop.
And as we grow older, the way we liven up a party changes. I noticed that at my age now, endless dancing was surpassed by singing, like those who rent Karaoke San Antonio. I cannot sing but I really want to try and learn. I am always awed by people who never puts down the microphone and sings their rendition of a song one after the other.
Truly, the way we liven up a party has evolved and continuous to change as we grow older. But we must stick with the basic – that is to enjoy the party with our love ones, no matter how we celebrate it. Agree?
