Celebration of Love Week on February, 2018: Celebration for 2nd child?
Celebration of Love Week 2018. Celebrating True Love Week with 'Limited Time Magic' Surprises at ... Celebrating True Love Week
Well, I am 6 weeks pregnant with my second child now. I surely want a baby shower, I had one with my first why not the second? It's not like you got pregnant so you could have a baby shower, ya know? lol. Not rude at all, it's to celebrate the baby and get help from your family and friends, people who want to support you and be there to help. My family and friends would think it rude if I didn't want one, but that's just me. Everyone is fighting over who gets to throw it so there will be more than one. Sorry back to you. rambling. As for your little boy let him open your gifts, he'll love ripping the paper to bits. Have a special cake just for him that features his favorite cartoon character. An easy way to make him feel special is to go to Walmart, go to the party section and get him (once again his fav character) a party hat, noise maker, things to that affect, he will look festive, be entertained and feel special. Every child is different just because it's second born doesn't make this child any less important than the first born, do not feel guilty for having a baby shower for your second born. No one said anything about expecting/wanting gifts, it's more about being surrounded with people who love you and the baby, not to mention the other child and if they come with gifts than accept them :) Good luck, best wishes!
Themes maybe use your sons character

what do the 4 weeks of advent stand for?
Absolutely nothing and just to waste your time and money!!
It is nothing to do with either Christianity or Islam but it does have it's origins in the midwinter festival and many other basically pagan rites but since much of it is a celebration of nature rather than religion everyone should be able to enjoy it and be happy together despite religion!!
The ancient European pagans celebrated the midwinter festival and a number of other festivals long before Christianity ever existed!
Babylonians celebrated the feast of the Son of Isis with gluttonous eating and drinking, and gift giving and the goddess of fertility, love, and war.
The Romans held a festival on 25 December called “Dies Natalis Solis Invicti, celebrating their own god Sol Invictas - PAGAN.
The Persian god Mithras, the Syrian sun god Elah Gabal, the German Sol, the Greek Helios and the Mesopotamian Shamash. But also Saturnalia, honouring Saturn, the God of Agriculture. The law courts and schools were closed. No public business could be transacted an this is where the holidays originated - ALL PAGAN!!!
Wax tapers were given by the more humble to their superiors. The origin of the Christmas candle - PAGAN!!
In Rome groups of costumed went from house to house entertaining their people. And this was where the carolling Christmas tradition originated PAGAN!!
Statues of the Mother and lover or Mother and son were paraded through the streets not only in Italy but also in Africa, Spain, Portugal, France, Germany and Bulgaria. Thus, the symbolism of the Heavenly Virgin and the infant child paraded on a yearly basis are not of Christian origin. They stem from the Mother-goddess religion, which is very ancient ENTIRELY PAGAN!!.
Scandinavian countries celebrated Yule honouring Thor - PAGAN.
In Germania (not Germany) they celebrated midwinter night followed by 12 wild nights of eating and drinking. The 12 days of Christmas PAGAN!!
The church under Pope Julius I declared that Christ’s birth would be celebrated on December 25 in 350 AD in order to try to hijack the PAGAN festivals but it was largely ignored. Christians did not really celebrate Christmas until 378 but it was then dropped in 381 and not resurrected until 400.
The Christmas tree stems from pagan tradition and ritual surrounding the Winter Solstice, which included the use of holly boughs ivy and other foliage as an adaptation of pagan tree worship. Holly and ivy represented male and female. Mistletoe was considered a sacred plant, and the custom of kissing under the mistletoe began as a fertility ritual - all PAGAN!!
Santa Claus came from the Dutch “Sinterklaas” and was a tall figure riding a white horse through the air and usually accompanied by Black Peter, an elf who punished disobedient children. Also the origin of the reindeer, sleigh and the elves ALL PAGAN!!
America actually banned Christmas several times and is the originator of the expression “Happy Holidays” which came about because of the pagan origins of Christmas to include all religions and traditions!!
The Venerable Bede, an early Christian writer pointed out that the Christian church absorbed Pagan practices when it found the population unwilling to give up the festivals. Thus a lot of what Christians now see as Christians practices are in fact pagan!!!
He said that so many years ago!!! Nowadays he would think christians were the pagans!!!
