Alphabet Parties – Letter ‘Y’

Yellow yowies yodelling?

Alphabet parties are all the rage these days. People have parties based on the first letter of their name (e.g. Alice will have an ‘A’ theme party and Orville, an ‘O’ theme party). If your name’s Xavier, and you have more than four friends, use your surname.

  • Yellow – have a party with yellow decorations, yellow costumes and yellow food!
  • Yellow submarine and the Beatles
  • Yes, yes.  Make it a rule that everyone must answer “yes” to any question… and then watch them try to turn the question around like the best of politicians.  If that’s too scary, make “yes” the one word that nobody is allowed to say. Use the fines as a fundraiser.  Would you like a drink?
  • Yeti – or go local with the Kilcoy Yowie
  • YMCA and the Village People. Need a reminder? Here is their official site and youtube videos
  • Yoda – Star Wars Party
  • Yokel – dress and talk like country yokels – see this Two Ronnies video if you need some pointers.

  • Yowie
  • Bananas (in or out of their pyjamas)
