What is a chicken pox party?

a party when a bunch of people who have chicken pox get together because they can't spread it to anyone. haha that's my best guess.

I don't know, but I don't want to be invited.

i have no idea. the only thing i think of is a bunch of people with chicken pox get together and have a party. idk i just made it up

I think when a kid gets chicken pox, they get together with kids that have not had it yet, so they will all get it to get it over with.

Basically, if a young child- normally under ten- gets chicken pox, a 'party' is arranged where children of a similar age or younger haven't had chicken pox go to the house and interact with the child.

If all goes to plan, the children will also get chicken pox.

It sounds cruel, but it's better to get it at a younger age than an older age as it can be fatal. It gets it out of the way when the child doesn't suffer too much, whereas an older person can really be effected.

I haven't had chicken pox, and am now eighteen, always worried about the chance of getting it; I wish I had gotten it as a younger child.

Its were parents try and get there kids to catch chicken pox because the younger (but not to young) they get it the less scarring and the milder it will be.

It's when a one kid get's chicken pox, usually when they are 1 - 5, and a lot of other parents bring their own kids to play with the infected child. Since nearly everyone gets chicken pox only once in their life and then they can't get it anymore. parents sometimes think its best for their kid to get it out of the way when there young and not deal it when they're 20.

A sleep over , where at least one of the kids has contagious chicken pox.
The intention is to get the kids infected early when it is easier for them to deal with the disease.

A chicken pox party is the situation you have where one kid in the neighborhood gets chicken pox, and all the other neighborhood moms bring their kids too to get it over with so their kids will be protected against it later on in life. The antibodies developed prevent the symptoms from getting much worse later on.

A chicken pox party is when parents deliberately bring their child to a gathering where another child with active chicken pox is present. All of the children will then get chicken pox at a predictable time after the party. After the infection the children will most likely have lifetime immunity to chicken pox.

The chicken pox party was probably always a dumb idea, but nowadays it is been rendered completely obsolete because there is a chickenpox vaccine.

Instead of exposing your child to sickness and infection you can simply have your pediatrician administer the chickenpox vaccine to render your child immune to chickenpox.

an idiotic idea. try the chicken pox VACCINE.

where if one kid gets the chicken pox...a lot of parents send there kids who HAVE NOT had chicken pox yet...go hang out with he kid WITH chicken pox...in hopes of getting it as well.

because chicken pox is less deadly the younger you are...
