It might be my non-English background, but I often find myself missing the subtleties of the language. For example, the world Party was a word I misinterpreted; I needed to come to London to learn what it meant.

Originally, I thought that Party was a social event or a celebration. But now  I realize that Party -- whether a birthday party, a Christmas party, and definitely New Year Party -- means drinking until London appears like a fun place to be in.

I like this interpretation. Yet I still wonder, is it really the only way to have fun? I still have many Christmas parties lined up to figure this out.
