I’ve heard of many high school seniors’ families throwing group parties this year for graduation, and I’m wondering if they are doing it because it’s more fun to be with all their friends or because it makes more sense financially to share the costs for a party, especially in this economy.
The other trend I’m noticing is for the family party to be thrown before the actual graduation night as not to interfere with the graduate going out with his or her friends after graduation.
I can remember from my high school graduation that I couldn’t wait to leave my parents’ party to head out with my friends.
Are you throwing a group graduation party this year? Have you noticed others doing it? Are they throwing it a week or even two before graduation? Why do you think they are doing it?
