Stag weekend parties are part of a tradition that has been around even back to the Roman Civilization. The term stag party is endemic within United Kingdom, in other countries it may be termed as bachelor party. The word stag symbolizes one’s manliness. This correlation is really old and was based on the fact that stags were supposed to be well capable of wooing the female counterpart.
Even now, this tradition is still observed by many people and it seems as though it is not going to die down anytime soon. In fact, it has taken a more detailed and extravagant form. In the previous years, stag parties are more of the night before the wedding celebration which in some way makes sense according to its term. Now, these stag parties are celebrated weeks or days before the actual wedding date. This is due to the fact that brides are more reluctant to have their future husbands go into the wedding ceremony still half intoxicated with alcohol.
This special tradition is not totally different in other countries. Generally, the day starts with a casual get together coupled with light but fun activities. The activities is based on where the groom is from. But the general notion is that the groom can get to do unusual things that are not experienced by a married man. For example, there may be a stripping of the groom’s clothes or tying him to a pole while being half naked. But one thing is for sure, booze is never absent in this type of party.
