In my point of view, I think parties generally is good, because they are like small communities where you can communicate with other people, you can have fun.

I do agree with you. Party is a good opportunity to raise the relationship between people such as companies, organizations need taking parties to rise staff' relationship. A birthday party is a good chance to enhance friendship and is a unforgettable mark of one's life. A farewell party is needed when you need to say goodbye to your friends, your kin for going studying abroad. And new year parties are wonderful opportunities to get together with family members, friends, and so on. In all, parties are needed in our lives. It is a way of entertainment, too.
The problem is what kind and size of parties, I mean that who take part in, how much you pay for, how long it lasts, where it takes...For example, it is unacceptable that a poor student' s birthday party takes in a luxurious restaurant, invites so much people, lasts all night...

Everybody has his way of distracting, some find it enjoyable to set around the table in a family diner, some prefer to spend their time with the person they love and some prefer to stay alone far from people and far from parties noise. Personally, I don’t mind having parties from time to time, but becoming addicted to that way of amusement is a biiig waste of time and money.

I dont think so, if someone is arraging parties for some casual ocassions then it is fine, however if you have a regular party at home or somewhere else then it is waste of time

I only have experienced family and friends gatherings/parties. So it's occasionally held. I see these as special events and celebration for thanksgiving. I don't look at this as a waste of money, if the person can afford it why not. We have different ways of expressing our gratitude for others. (some ways just cannot be the same all the time) :roll: I believe that occasionally is alright.

I think parties would be waste of money only if you do it everyday even without important event to celebrate.
