When I was a kid, you could have a party for any reason but it always meant the same thing: a bunch of people got together, ate some food, had some cake and maybe some ice cream, played some games, and had fun. There was music sometimes, there was a pool sometimes. If you were lucky, there were presents and if you were *really* lucky they were for you.
Now, party usually means a whole different thing. It means drugs, alcohol, anything people can use to mess with their brains in order to get away with irresponsible decisions. I don't get it.
