    Present Simple/Present Continous

    1.

    I have an exam tomorrow.
    I am having an exam tomorrow.

    I think the second one is more natural.What could you say?

    2.

    At a party you ask someone: Do you go home? or Are you going home?

    I think both variants can be used. What could you say?
