The most usual way to entertain friends at home is to invite them for a meal, either in the evening
or at lunchtime on a Sunday. In smaller communities, for example a country village, people also
invite each other for a drink before a meal, for morning coffee or afternoon tea.
When guests are invited for a meal, they often sit and chat while they have a drink before the
meal, and coffee is usually served afterwards. Several friends are sometimes invited at once to
make a small party. These parties are almost always informal. Formal occasions, when written
invitations are sent out and people dress formally, rarely take place in people’s homes, although they
did in the past.
Larger parties are arranged to celebrate a particular event. Children’s birthdays are often
celebrated with a tea party for the child’s friends. The meal will often be followed by party games.
Parties are held to celebrate a person’s coming of age (formerly at 21 but now at 18), a couple’s
silver wedding anniversary (after 25 years of marriage), a couple’s engagement and New Year’s
Eve. In the USA a person’s 40th birthday is often marked with a special celebration. A housewarming
party is sometimes held to invite friends to one’s new home.
In summer, if the weather is fine, people may hold a barbecue in the garden. A much grander,
more formal occasion is a garden party, held in the afternoon, when tea is served.

A. On a Sunday morning.           B. On formal occasions.
C. On informal occasions.          D. On a Sunday evening.

A. To mark a person’s 40th birthday.
B. To entertain the child’s friends.
C. To celebrate a couple’s wedding anniversary.
