Baby showers can be described as a celebration of new life, family and love. They bring people together and, no matter how much stress was present beforehand, it seems to evaporate with the introduction of fun games, yummy food, and the topic of babies. A newborn is a symbol of renewal, love and happiness, and the baby shower is a special opportunity for friends and family to join in on the momentous occasion of welcoming a new life.
The modern baby shower traces back many hundreds of years to when people would bring helpful gifts to new mothers. Although there was no actual party, it was only a matter of time before these little celebrations evolved into baby showers as we know them today where they are not only a way to welcome the new baby but also a time to celebrate family!
Traditionally, once the baby had reach a month in age, he or she would be introduced to all the mother’s friends and family. Generally, this time-honored tradition was linked with a major event such as the aqiqah and cukur jambul or the baby’s christening. As the years went by, women began celebrating their newest bundles of joy even before they were born. Victorian women in the late 19th century would often host tea parties for the expecting mothers in their lives, and it quickly became a common practice.
The 20th century saw the greatest changes in the baby shower, bringing it from simple tea parties to their modern form. Although still commonly attended by women only, showers no longer have to be exclusively female. It is increasingly an acceptable option to invite close male family/friends and children too. In today’s world, there are all sorts of unique families, and for every one of them there is a different ‘right way’ to hold the party -- however the essence is always the same -- a celebration of life, love and family.
