In my area the JWs make a "get together" (party) out of anything...
someone leaving for a privilege of service? Party
Someone coming home from the same? Party
Time to study Watchtower as a group before the meeting? Drag out the chips and dip!
On and on it goes. The "party" is usually in someones home or yard because there is no money when you are a JW, if youve done it the way you're supposed to.
The food is predictable, the mood is also. "Arent we glad we are the happiest people on earth? No one gets together and has as much fun as we do!"
The drink is soft drinks and maybe beer if youre lucky. The mental drink is of course ...kool aid
