The paper deals with the rituals performed by party participants, both hosts and guests. The theoretical basis for the study is Erving Goffman's (1955, 1967) seminal work on interaction rituals. The rituals discussed here include greetings and introductions, compliments and responses to compliments, food offers and responses to them, and parting rituals. They are presented against two different cultural backgrounds, Polish and generally understood Anglo-Saxon. The data used in the analysis were gathered in Poland, England and the English-speaking part of Canada. Participant observation, interviews and introspection were the methods used to collect them.
