Are baby ‘gender reveal’ parties stupid?

By ‘stupid’ I mean silly, unnecessary, over the top, etc. Whatever you want to interpret from that.

As a Brit, I really don’t understand the need to have a big gender reveal party. It’s like ‘hey, let’s all gather to find out my unborn baby’s genitalia which will be represented by ridiculously stereotypical colours!!’ I don’t get it, and I really hope it’s not going to spread to the UK like Black Friday did 🙄.

What are your opinions on gender reveals?

Did you have a gender reveal? What did it achieve? Why do you think they’re necessary? I’m interested to hear opinions of people who had one.

P.S. I will admit I am just assuming gender reveal parties come from the US, because I’d never heard of them outside of this app and US reality TV shows. If they didn’t originate in the US then the US are certainly responsible for making them big and extravagant. I’m interested to heard the history of them too!
