If you are in Brazil or if you follow any Brazilian celebrity on social media, you have probably seen the hashtag #partiu.
But what does it mean, specifically?
Well, let’s say you are at home and a friend sends you a message inviting you to a party. He can ask you : “partiu festa?” or “partiu balada”, for example. That expression literally means: let’s go to the party?
People write like that instead of actually writing the complete sentence, which is “vamos para a festa?”
If you are saying yes, you could substitute that for #partiu, or even #partiu #festa. It’s a way of saying “let’s go!” or “let’s go to… (insert place)”
Or you could be ironic, saying: #partiu #Netflix or even #partiu #dormir, if you’re not willing to go out! hahaha
