The tradition of celebrating the holidays at home, in the circle of family or friends, fortunately, remained even today. But, as a rule, all the holidays are very traditional – after a generously covered table, guests usually entertain themselves with choral singing. Of course, all the owners strive to feed the guests deliciously, but few people think about how to entertain them. And in vain. After all, every holiday should be remembered by guests not only with a generously set table, but also with a cheerful pastime. How to organize a home holiday correctly? Let’s try to answer this question in this article.

Of course, every holiday requires some preparation from its organizers, because, you see, not every person is able to impromptu joke and come up with funny contests all evening. Therefore, long before the day of the holiday, it is necessary to prepare its script.
First of all, you need to make a list of invited guests. Try to make sure that among them there are no people who experience negative emotions towards each other. Next, look at people of what age and social status will come to your house. Will your guests be of different ages or will they be almost the same age? Will there be children at your party?? It is imperative to pay attention to these points, because the content of the competitions depends on who will be your guest. Agree that in the youth campaign there is absolutely no place, for example, a competition dedicated to Soviet songs and, conversely, people of mature will not be interested in guessing the words of songs of modern musical groups.
The organization of the home holiday, largely, also depends on its reason. Do not forget that any reason – be it on March 8, February 23, a bachelorette party, an anniversary, a birthday or a meeting of school friends, you will need to display in the decoration of your home, in competitions and games, surprises and gifts. Such seemingly trifles will help you create a festive atmosphere.

According to etiquette, guests must be invited to a large celebration about two weeks before the date of the holiday, and it is advisable to send them original invitation cards. If you plan a small holiday in the number of guests, then you can invite them by phone, especially if these are your relatives or close friends.
So that your holiday goes to the “Hurray”, the room where the celebration will be held must be decorated in accordance with the theme of the holiday. So, for example, for a birthday or an anniversary you will need balls, for a woman’s day, March 8 – flowers, and for Valentine’s Day – arrow and Amurchi.
It would be nice if some of the festive dishes also correspond to the theme of the holiday. For example, for an evening dedicated to Valentine’s Day, you can bake a heart-shaped cake, and good friends who have gathered on the day of graduation from school or college can always be treated to a dish with a surprise.
So that the guests at your holiday do not get bored, you will need to think in advance about the contests and games with which you will entertain them. The selection of competitions depends on many factors. For home holidays, you can prepare games based on the scenarios of famous television programs, such as “Field of Miracles”, “Weak Link”, “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” and so on. But, such competitions require preliminary preparation and the interest of guests, which, unfortunately, is not always the case.

If your guests do not want to participate in intellectual games, then offer them a song contest that all invited usually likes and does not require special preparation. Let each guest call songs, for example, about the New Year, about the birthday, or songs dedicated to women or men. You can complicate the task and try to recall songs in which there is the name of the birthday man if you celebrate your birthday.
If there are children in your campaign, then they can be offered to participate in outdoor games, which also need to be prepared in advance, or together with adults to take part in the song competition.
Of course, everyone who participated in competitions and, especially, the winners will be pleased to get prizes from your hands, which can be purely symbolic. It will also be good if you prepare funny diplomas or medals, for example, Miss Smile, “started evenings”, “Soul of the campaign”, “Lady Coquet” and so on.
