People say baby showers are about celebrating babies, but I think most people have them just to get free stuff. Isn't asking your friends and family to provide your child with the essentials the same as asking for it from the government or charitable organization?Answer Question

"SOME people treat it like PA - they see it as a right, and they expect others to buy them everything because they are having a baby. Seriously, if you are adult enough to have a baby, then you are adult enough to buy your own stuff. IF someone WANTS to throw a shower for you, that is great, but it should not be seen as THE WAY you get the stuff you need for your baby...AND, if someone does throw you a shower you better not complain about all the stuff your didn't get or all the stuff you got that you didn't register for. People are allowed to pick out the gifts they want to buy for you, and they do not have to look at your registery if they don't want to."
Yes! People pretend that they're celebrating the arrival a new baby when in reality they're just trying to get the items they need. Great answer!

Do you think wedding gifts are the same as PA? Bridal showers? Birthday gifts? christmas gifts? Anniversary gifts?
Only if you set up a registry asking for specific gifts.
