Think back to your favorite time that you’ve spent with friends or family. Was it a big party, or a small gathering? Maybe, you went somewhere special, like a nice restaurant or an exciting night club, and partied all night with your friends. Or perhaps, you traveled to a beautiful location, saw the sights, and relaxed with your family. Wherever you went and whatever you did, you have great memories of that time because you had a blast!

We use the expression “a blast” to describe a really fun experience. A fun vacation or outing can be a blast. A party or concert can be a blast. However, sometimes we also have a blast doing something more tame, like watching a movie, reading a book, or even planning a wedding! Actor Skylar Astin had a blast planning his wedding with his future wife. He says that their personalities and likes are so similar that it is really fun to plan a big event together.

What do you always have a blast doing?
