What are the key elements necessary for throwing an authentic masquerade party?

Your theme is the most important part ... ie: 1950's, 1960's, etc., or black/white clothing (no other color.) It can be anything you want from any country of the world. I find the best one is to look up on "Google" .... Mardi Gras and see what their costumes are. There is absolutely no rule as to what you can wear, but it's a blast and "anything" goes. Send invitations out (you don't want to go to all this work and then have people bail out if you just phone them.) Be sure you have put the "theme" in your invitation, the place, what time, etc. Also request they call you to let you know if they are coming. Decorate your home or hall that you may rent in the theme you have chosen (go to party rentals) and concentrate on Music first, then the decorations. Food is easy. If it's Mardi Gras then you can do creole dishes, etc. If it's the 50's hamburgers, chips, coke, etc., (alcohol of course ... people should bring their own liquor, but you should supply the soft drinks and ice.) If it's Mexican, do bean dips, wraps, etc. If you go under Google and put in "Mexican recipes" for example you will get a whole slew of them. Before you decide on the theme, think of the personalities of most of your friends, their ages and what you think they would all relate too and have fun with. Remember, you are the brain child of this party, you did all the work and it's up to your guests to have the fun. PLEASE NOTE: If this is a high end party then you should supply the alcohol and everything else. Good Luck Have fun! Marcy

Contract Law

How binding is a banquet hall contract?

It depends on the contract, who wrote it, who signed it, whether money changed hands. If the contract clearly expresses intent, you signed the contract and you paid for part or all of the hall rental, it's probably a pretty solid contract and you're stuck. Your best bet would be to try to work with them for some kind of compromise. Getting upset with them won't do you much good. Remember that they're in the business of renting the hall and if you tie it up for the night then they aren't making money on their investment. If you could find someone to take the contract for the period of the rental you could probably work out a favorable resolution. * All written contracts are legally binding to the extent of the contractual terms and the established laws in the state in which they were created and/or entered into. All verbal contracts are equally binding if the plaintiff can provide substantiated evidence that there was a "meeting of the minds" by the involved parties. In the US it is not always necessary for money to exchange hands to insure the legality of the instrument in question and the enforcement of such.

How do you become popular in seventh grade?

Be popular in a good way. Smile and be nice to everyone. Help people who need it, and ask when you need help. Make a good impression on the students and teachers. Being popular isn't important, being helpful, caring, and wise is!

BUT, if your the kind of person who wants to be popular in fashion and stuff, here are a list of things that I have to get me to popularity:

-shop at Charlotte Russe and old navy, places like that. (a.e. and hollister)

-get some cute shoes and sandals.

-have cardigans, tank tops and cute capris and jeans.

-get a cute purse.

What can you dress up as for a dress up party?

There are all kinds of costumes you can wear to a dress up party. You can make your own costume. Go in your pajama's and a bathroom. Put curlers in your hair and wear your slippers. That's easy enough.

Homemade and easy costumes include: A house wife, a woman or a man, a bum, a witch, use a black sheet and get a broom stick. Just think about all the silly homemade costumes you can make. I've seen a friend dress in a black leotard and tights and buy a cat ears and tail kit. One buddy of mine dressed up in tights and a turtleneck shirt, and pinned small balloons to his shirt, he said he was a bunch of Grapes! There are lots of ideas for homemade costumes or you can buy a costume from a local costume store. There are also plenty of online sites where you can find costumes too.

Some good ideas are celebrities or people well known, although if you have a good sense of humour go as something which is embarrassing but know your friends will laugh.

For a Christmas party, you can dress up as a princess or a bride in red silky dress or a black sparkling gown. If it is a fancy dress competition you can also opt to dress as a candle.

The usual angel, devil, jester, queen of hearts, prince or princess are always fun. But it's also fun if you can get a friend who is also invited to team up as a pair for an Anthony and Cleopatra, Jack and Jill, Sonny and Cher, or George and Martha.

Why is a cool person cool?

A person who is "cool" displays confidence and a calm, unflappable demeanor. Whether "cool" people are actually popular or not, their bearing suggests that they are, and they are always in good spirits. They are constantly involved with the activities and people around them, and they are seldom upset or angered. They are not apathetic toward problems, but deal with them as best they can. Nearly everyone knows someone they consider cool, and it is possible to learn from those who are acknowledged as cool - not by copying them but by observing their actions, and how others react to them.

What are Lebanon's customs and traditions?

Despite Lebanon's diversified people, who belong to 18 different sects, the Lebanese are yet tied down to sharing the same traditions. You can see this clearly when attending Lebanese weddings anywhere in Lebanon. Whether simple or grand, a Lebanese wedding wouldn't be truly Lebanese without a 'zaffeh'. Zaffeh is Arabic for the act of escorting the bride to her husband, and nowadays with her husband, in celebration of their holy marriage. According to a recent news article, planning weddings is so big in Lebanon that many Arabs and Europeans call Lebanese wedding planners to help them out with their weddings. Even better, some come to wed the Lebanese way! For more information, you can copy and paste these links:(The first link is the most resourceful one, it'll talk about Lebanon's customs and traditions)http://encarta.msn.com/sidebar_631522222/customs_of_lebanon.htmlhttp://forum.tayyar.org/f10/important-customs-traditions-lebanon-18396/index2.htmlhttp://www.worldofchristmas.net/christmas-world/lebanon.html

Do Jehovah's Witnesses celebrate child birth?

I am not 100% sure exactly what you are refering to by the term "celebrate child birth." But I will do the best I can.

We do have baby showers if that is what you mean. A "baby shower" of course, being a party or a get together where friends and family present gifts to the new parents either before or after the birth of the child, and these gifts are customarily to benefit the child. (cribs, blankets, clothes, etc)

Whether or not new parents have some sort of formal celebration for the actual birth of the child, like some kind of "welcome to the world" thing, would be up to the parents. But I am not aware of anybody I know doing this.

The only problem there would be with any celebration or party is if there was a connection to the worship of a god other than the GOD of the Bible, some kind of pagan religious practice, or something like that.

JW's don't have a problem with parties or celebrations. We also love to give and receive gifts. In the case of any celebration or party the deciding factor of whether or not we will participate will always be whether or not there is any connection to worship of a god other than the GOD of the Bible. If there is a connection to some form of worship of a god other than the Biblical GOD, then we will not have any part in it.

That is why we do not do birthday celebrations, that is, annual celebrations honoring the day on the calender that the child officially becomes a year older. Birthday celebrations come from ancient pagan religions and were to appease the god of the particular astrological sign that the child was born under, and to ask that god to bring the child good fortune.

I hope I was able in some way to answer your question.

Was the 1984 miners strike worthwhile?

No, not from the very beginning, there was coal reserves for at least two years and thatcher was stubborn and wanted to enforce the free market program. It was a plan of Thatcher's, to in the long run close all nationalised coal mines; particularly the Welsh coal mines as she was anti-welsh. As a result of this the main source of employment in wales and northern England were destroyed and 20,000 people were left unemployed.
