Stop Throwing A Party For Every Event In Your Life!

If you know a lot of people and have a lot of friends, you've probably received some interesting party invitations for parties like the one above. It's a Gender Reveal Party. Yes, that's where the proud parents throw a party to reveal the sex of their baby. 


No one but you, the grandparents and maybe your closest friends are going to give a flying *&^% as long as it's a baby and not a dinosaur or half alien from another planet. There's really no need for all these weird ass parties. 

How about a "My First Menstruation" party? No? Too much? I bet someone out there had had one. 

Hey, I'm going through menopause..let's have a party for that! I'll serve ice water and give out fans and some xanax for the mood swings. 

Oh and there's the "Divorce Party" You get divorced and throw yourself and reverse wedding reception. Yes, this is a real thing.

Oh and maybe the best one yet..."The Potty Parties" Yes, the parents want everyone and their uncle to know their little pride and joy has learned how to use the toilet. O.o

When did we start having parties for every event in our lives? When did this become a thing?
