Some people say that these celebrations are done for the first child in the family, whereas the other people say that the celebration is done for all the new born in the family. The celebrations are done with all the women and men attending the function. Some people only invite ladies to the function, however there is no such rule. The baby shower is done either at homes or a bigger place, depending upon the number of guests. The guests include family members, friends, relatives and other necessary invites. There is no rule of where and when the shower to be held. It can be held either at the host’s place or any bigger place depending upon the number of people invited. The celebration includes food but not a full meal. Mostly the eatables include cakes, biscuits, tea and other snacks; however there is no such rule. The grandparents are also showered with gifts by the invites as there is a new member in the family.

There are many religions and regions in the world who celebrated baby shower in their own way. The name and the method of celebrating totally depend on one’s religion. The baby shower in most of the religions is done by women. The celebration includes giving out gifts, playing games such as taste the baby food, guessing the gender or the date of birth of the baby. The guests get gifts to the mother and if the baby is already born then the gifts include all the baby items such as baby toys, clothes, diapers, and other baby oriented gifts.

There are different religions which celebrate the baby shower in their own respective manner. In Islam, the baby shower celebration is known as “Aqiqah”. This involves the sacrifice of sacrificial animals. The meat is divided into three parts. One part is given to the needy and poor, the second part to the relatives or for the celebration purpose if the occasion is celebrated among the relatives and friends and the third part for household itself. In India there are many religions and the names of the baby shower vary accordingly. In the Hindu religion the baby shower is known as “godhbharai” and in Maharashtra, it is known as “dohaaljewan”. Since the regions are different, the celebration also differs. There are no such rules as it is just a celebration done to bless the mother and the baby. Since the celebrations are done with all the women oriented activities, most of the men term it as a Women oriented celebration. But there are also people who take this occasion in a get together manner. The etiquettes differ and the celebrations differ from religion to religion, but the concept remains the same. There are several beliefs and the celebrations are done according the religion.
