All You Wanted To Know About The Origin Of Baby Shower
Baby shower celebrations have become an integral part of American culture. However, this tradition did not originate in the United States of America. It was brought here by immigrants. Few experts believe that this tradition has originated in countries like Egypt or Rome.
However, no one really knows when or where this tradition has started. But earlier on, such baby shower parties were given after the baby was born. It was sort of a welcoming party where friends and family gathered to celebrate a new life entering this world.
Baby shower parties increased in popularity especially after World War II when it was to be a women-only event. They usually got clothing or different baby related gifts for the party.
With the advent of technology, parents started to find out the gender of their babies before they were born. That is why, baby shower parties were thrown before the baby boy or girl was born.
