Is fest only for party as in paaarty!, or can it include a political party?
Swedish uses på a lot more than English and you are på en fest. That’s the only explanation.
But the sentence is not, you are on a party, but, are you going to the party, so why isnt till festen correct ? Or can you use both ?
Till also works and is accepted, but I’d say på festen is more common/idiomatic.
Think you need to write in Swedish. Wanted to tell you it should be "why isn't it right to..."
Hi, is "festen" a common word in Sweden, or do you also use the word "party"? (I ask that because in the German language "Fest" sounds a bit old-fashioned)
"Fest" is very common. We also say "party", but it is a bit colloquial and don't always fit. (There is a Swedish version "partaj" but that is rarely used today). Parties for children are usually called "ett kalas". (There's a bunch of other words too...)
Do you know why it didn't accept feast, as feast and party are both very similar(and feast and fest are both very related with each other)?
A feast, could be described as a party but it involves usually a lot of different kinds of food which are ritualistically eaten. ie. A christmas feast. Turkey, mince pies. Plum pudding. Booze
