      Party Time

      Americans plan parties for many reasons. As in other cultures, many Americans attend parties for weddings and religious and national holidays. But some parties are especially American. For example, a group of neighbors may gather on their street to eat food, play music and visit with one another. This is called a block party. A woman might invite a group of women to a party called a baby shower for a friend who is about to give birth. Guests bring presents for the new baby. Birthday parties are also very popular. Many parents organize a party for their child around a theme. Rock star parties are very popular for young girls and boys. Birthday parties usually include gifts and a birthday cake with candles. Birthday parties can be low cost or very costly. Some parents take their children's birthday parties very seriously, even when the child is too young to fully understand the celebration.

      聚会时间

      美国人因为很多原因组织派对。在某些文化中,许多美国人因为婚礼、宗教、或法定节日出席派对,但是对美国人来说一些派对是非常特殊的。举个例子来说,一群邻里可能聚在街上一起聚餐,演奏音乐,互相拜访,这就是街道聚会。一位妇女为她要生宝宝的朋友邀请她认参加宝宝派对,客人们则携礼相探。宝宝派对也是非常受欢迎的。许多父母组织宝宝派对时总是会围绕某个主题。而摇滚派对对于年轻的男孩女孩们吸引力颇大。生日派对则通常包含礼物和插满蜡烛的生日蛋糕,可以很贵也可以很实惠。一些父母对孩子的生日派对是非常正式的,尽管孩子太小不能完全理解这种庆祝活动。
