Why do people throw family parties in your country?

In the States, people throw family parties for all the same reasons people do in other countries, like traditional holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. However, I’m not sure if other cultures do this like we do, but, in general, people here love to have parties! In my family, for instance, my mom will seriously use any excuse to invite family and friends over for a little soiree. This is more feasible in the summer, when my dad can barbecue hot dogs and burgers and we can hang out outside. So, yeah, I suppose we have family parties quite a bit.

Do people spend a lot of money on these parties in your country?

Well, that depends on if they have money or not! I don’t think it’s a status thing, as I believe this question is insinuating. I guess there are some families in the so-called “one percent” of society that will lavish great bundles of cash on family get-togethers, but I’ve only seen events like that on TV! I think real people, at least those in my circles, like to actually do potlucks, where family and friends all bring a dish and something to drink. It’s a communal effort. To my mind, that’s more fun anyway.
