Grad parties are exciting social events

Graduation parties have become a common tradition for newly graduated seniors. They are an exciting way for family and friends to get together and celebrate the great accomplishment of graduating high school.

Grad parties come in all shapes and sizes. The great part about them is that the graduating senior gets to decide its location, time, activities and attendees.

Some people may decide to have a small get-together while others may want to make the party a grand affair. The great thing is that it really doesn’t matter. Each graduate can decide what kind of grad party they would like to host.

A graduation party is all about the student. It is one day out of the year that is designated to just celebrating them and all of their accomplishments from high school. Birthdays and Christmases are great, but knowing that people are there just for the intellectual accomplishments they have completed is a feeling like no other.

No matter what a graduate decides to do to celebrate, the end of their high school career will be fun. The important thing is that it is a celebration of them and all of their hard work.

    Grad Parties aren’t for Everyone

    Grad Parties are seen as part of the process of the graduating process. In fact, they’re the fun part, as implied by the name. Aside from surviving senior year, and walking through Graduation with all your friends, the grad party is a quintessential piece. But it is not for everyone, or at least it doesn’t have to be.

    An assumption about Grad Parties is that every senior has the ability to host all of their friends and a good chunk of their family for at least two hours and that is not possible for every graduating student.  It may be for economic reasons or for the space of one’s house but senior shouldn’t feel pressure to just create a grad party if it’s not feasible or if it’s just not for them. Event if they can host one some senior must not be comfortable being with people for that long.

    All this isn’t to say that all seniors should stop having grad parties because some can’t nor should anyone feel bad for having. Those who are having them should know they are the exception, not the rule. Those who aren’t should know it is perfectly fine not to and there’s nothing wrong with celebrating graduating by inviting a few friends over for a bonfire.
