Re: How about a single's shower?

Nope, I don't think we need a special "Single Shower" or a "Single Person's Holiday" celebration. It's simple.  If you want to throw yourself a party for just being YOU or just "because".....DO IT!  Nothing's stopping you from doing that.  And if you want your friends to bring along a token of their esteem...."tell them!"  And there....it's done!

 

I think we have enough celebrations and holidays on the calendar.  We really don't need one more!

 

And that is my humble opinion!

I have a question, rather than a comment: are showers really celebrations, or are they another occassion requiring a gift? 

Well, maybe I figured it out. Bridal showers are more intimate than weddings. But then so are bachelorette parties. Baby showers are a great way to celebrate a joyous occassion. But it hasn't happened yet, and that's the point. With a newborn, parents will be too busy to entertain. I'd rather send a gift AFTER the birth, but parents need stuff before the birth. So, gifts. 

I'm good. Thanks.

I replied to this question earlier but I wasn't being serious in my answer.  I highly doubt anyone other than a single person herself would attend. As for buying a present, you would all have to reciprocate sooner or later and that could end up just being a headache. Aside from all that, the idea really doesn't fly. If you are single and enjoy it, everyday would be a celebration in itself. A shower simply isn't needed or necessary.

I’ll bet Hallmark is the real driving force behind this idea!

Sounds like another money grab to me, I would not attend.

The only good shower is the one where you get cleaned up, showers as parties are dumb.

Rediculous!   Nothing wrong with being single, but if you are staying single there is no CHANGE going on in your life to celebrate!  All the other showers like baby and wedding involve a life-changing event to celebrate.   I know people who get divorced and celebrate being single but I don't think a shower is appropriate.  After all, the next thing that will happen is we will be expected to particiate in a shower for someone who just became a widower or widow and is darn happy about it! (not a thing to celebrate since that is disrespectful to the deceased, no matter how glad their spouse was that they died.)

No, I don't like this. Just to put it in context, as a single, I always got stuck covering for others, often five months at a clip, on top of my own job. However, there is no "occasion" here. What makes sense, is to do something like have a house warming party (or apartment), for someone single when they are getting a new plac, give them a nice birthday party when they are too old for parents to be doing it, etc. But a "singles" shower, nah!

Why can’t one celebrate being single? There is no limit to what we can celebrate. Celebrations are meant to bring people together whatever the reason. I like Oprah Winfrey’s take on celebration: "The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate."

 

Having attended multiple weddings, anniversaries, showers, etc., if we expect something in return, are we not missing the point of giving? Selfless giving?  Luke 6:34 --"If you lend (or give) to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you?"
