Do you feel that way because you cannot afford to have big parties? Or because you think it is spoiling a child to have a big fuss about them one day a year? Did you have big parties growing up, or were you raised with small, intimate birthdays with just your family and friends?

I think it makes birthdays meaningless. When does it become whoring your child out for gifts? I think its greed driven and takes away from the real meaning. And I feel the same way about second and third baby showers too. I am all for parties, once in a while, for landmark celebrations. Oh wait... throw in excessive graduations. High school and college are fine, but parties for kindergarten, 6th grade, & 8th grade graduation are ridiculous. You are supposed to pass those grades, it's not a special achievement!
