Hi All ... need yr advise.
I am moved into a new house 8months ago and quite lousy to arrange house warming party.
some of my friend said it must to have house warming party, because party will make a noise... emmm for what purpose, she cannot tell me,
she just saying that is a tradition .

Depending on your religion.
For Buddhists, house warming is suppose to create alot of noise to 'inform' the 'things' there that this house is occupied.
For Christians, it's a chance to bless the house with fellow Christians and share your blessings with others (blessing = you have your own house).
For me, it's not really based on religion but just to celebrate the fact that you've achieved a milestone in life. It's not easy to buy a house so congrats!
For most people, the rite of passage into adulthood comprises of a few things - getting married, having children, buying your own home and so forth. A house warming is a way to share that joy with others plus it's a good excuse to have a party.
I just bought my own place recently and moved in over the weekend so will be having a house warming in September to celebrate. You dont't need to invite a lot of people - just have a few close friends over. If you dont't feel like cooking, you can get a caterer or make it a potluck event.

think most people do it also because they want to share their joy of having a place oof their own
but I heard also people say ask people to our new house to create a did not is to bless the house or something.
I didnt do any house warming. Cos my friends all feel that I stay very far, dont want to come
nope i dont hav any house warming before, we just moved in quietly after we DIY our house reno Lolzzzz
ermmm the ONLY time when it was most noisy is
1) the night before we got customary wedding coz my house is filled with a total of 30 pax (4-room nia)
2) and the days when my mother in law stays here, coz she speaks berri loudly, as if we are quarrelling lOlzzzzzzzz
I did housewarmng for my place coz wanna have a gathering with friends and also that the house will be noiser coz we are pretty quiet family...
really horrr, when my mother in law is staying here horrr, when i reached the lift lobby, have not even went into my house, can hear her voice lorrrrr
UN says khek pple talk that time like quarrelling lorrrr
*MORE INNOCENT Look*
please type at least a phrase "HOUSE warming" otherwise sure kenna warned by kopiboss you know what i m saying horrrr
so generally house warming is up to individual not really a custom i guess. i thought house warming is more of western then eastern beliefs?
hahahaha thanks a lot for all the replies, next week priest will come to blessing my house and invite close friends.
for party i think its a good idea to combine with one occassion eg dear son b'day. thanks!!!
I didnt have a house warming, so no, not a must for us. The first thing I think of is the amount of cleaning up I have to do after the guests have left! Also, we have to spend $$ to organise a party and guests also have to spend $$ to get gifts. I rather not have one.
we only had a house warming once in my old house, n it was my aunt who suggested it.
my mum doesnt like to have house warming cos: incurr extra expenses. and she have to clean up the mess after everyone leaves. i believe it is not about tradition, cos my mum is a buddhist herself and she doesnt even want it.
