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 term stag was coined so that it refers to one’s manliness.

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 previous years, it used to be more about a night-long party the day before the wedding which is more apt for a stag night in some sense. However these days, the boys responsible for planning the celebration is more careful to schedule it weeks prior to the actual wedding day. 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. Typically, the party begins with a casual social gathering and followed by some enjoyable activities after. The activities is more likely to be dependent on the region or place. 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. The same thing all over the world is to have unlimited drinks!
