Sokszor azért költözünk el, mert a szomszédunkban állandóan bulit tartanak, vagy éppen azért, hogy mi magunk többször rendezhessünk bulit a barátainkkal. Járjuk körbe milyen kifejezéseket használhatunk angolul, amikor a bulik szervezéséről beszélgetünk.

To start off with, we are going to look at some different words for celebration and also the different types of celebrations that you can have.

Usually people call a celebration a party but you might also hear the word bash or you could also have the word do. So some people might say: ’oh we're having a do for our anniversary party’ for example so this one is also quite common amongst natives so if you do hear it, don't be too confused by it.

Another word used for celebrations is the word shindu so some people might say ’oh I went to this shindig at the weekend it was really fun’. It does actually just mean a party or a celebration. You might also call a celebration a get-together because often when this happens lots of people come together for a celebration.

You might sometimes be invited to a farewell party or a send-off when maybe someone is moving to a new country or someone in your workplace has a new job so you would have a party to send them off in a great way.

Sometimes you might also want to have or be invited to a housewarming party. This is typical when someone moves into a new home once they are settled. They will invite their closest friends or family to warm up their house, to have a little party to celebrate their new place.

Also if you want to raise money for charity or have some sort of fundraiser this is another celebration or party so you might throw a fundraiser party, you might organize a fundraiser and you could attend one.

As well you could just simply call it a gathering so usually when there's a celebration lots of people gather together a little bit like come together.

reunion of friends that haven't seen each other for a really long time and you could also have a family reunion where people can come together and have a family reunion, have a big old party to celebrate and enjoy spending time together

 

Learners sometimes find difficult and often make mistakes with so the most common one here is to celebrate when we have a party so that's another verb we can use here:

We would say I'm having a party we tend to say I'm throwing a party so this is very common as well to use we would say I'm organizing a party but this is a little bit formal. But never say ’make a party’ because English speaking people don’t use this expression.

 

Next we're going to look at some phrases that we tend to use with celebrations:

to have the time of your life: (ragyogóan érzi magát) so if you attend a party that is really amazing you could have the time of your life meaning that you are having a great time, you are having the best time.

let our hair down: (fesztelenül viselkedünk) so if you go to a party you're going to let your hair down and let loose it means that you're going to completely relax and enjoy yourself

have a night out on the town:(átmulatni az éjszakát) so this is a phrase that British and American people use a lot but we would say if we are going out with friends, we are having a night out on the town

paint the town red: (csapni egy görbe estét/kirúgni a hámból) it is quite an interesting phrase that natives use meaning that they are going to have an amazing time and they are going to go out and enjoy themselves

When you're at a party you might also hear someone say:

I'm having a ball: (nagyon jól érzi magát) you are really enjoying yourself, you are having a whale of a time: (remekül szórakozik) which is another phrase that natives tend to use as well and all of these mean that people are having a good time.

Words or expressions, short phrases that have the word party in them and are related to parties orcelebrations:

party animal: (partiarc) usually an outg oing person someone that really enjoys going to parties

party pooper: (ünneprontó) someone that maybe is a bit negative in a party or a social event and they might ruin the fun a little bit

wet blanket: (ünneprontó) someone who is maybe a bit gloomy, who spoils the fun for everyone by being a bit negative

the life and soul of the party: (a társaság lelke/a parti motorja) someone that enjoys parties, enjoys socializing and funny and just someone that you remember at a party

to gate crash a party: (hívatlanul betolakodni egy buliba) you could gate crush any party and what that means is that you're not actually invited to that party but you find a way to somehow sneak into the party and enjoy yourself as well a

a party is in full swing: (teljes gőzzel megy a buli/javában folyik a buli) it means that lots of people are there now, everyone is dancing and enjoying themselves

to break up the party/ the party breaks up: (oszlatni a built) it's another way of describing that it has ended maybe it ended naturally or maybe there was an incident there and maybe the authorities have come in to break up the party and it has suddenly ended

have a fancy dress party (UK)/costume party (US): (jelmezbál) this is where you dress up usually people have these kinds of parties for halloween

have a hen party/ a stag party: (leánybúcsú/legénybúcsú) before a couple get married, they have a party, they have a night out with their friends. You'd have a hen party if you're the woman and the men would go on a stag party. In America they would call this a bachelor party and a bachelorette party

bridal shower and baby shower (US): (menyasszonyi ajándékos buli/babaváró buli; NEM tejfakasztó buli: to wet the baby’s head party) so these kinds of parties are typical before a wedding so although you might have a hen party or a bachelorette party, they tend to also throw a bridal shower. Also before someone has a baby so when a woman is pregnant they will throw a baby shower for that person as well which is a party where people will come along and you know usually have some sort of finger foods and drinks and you would bring that person some gifts.
