How many times have you ever heard someone say, "Yo, that bridal shower was LIT"?
For those of you who don't know, a wedding shower is an event typically thrown by a bride's female relatives or friends approximately two months before her wedding. It usually includes food and a couple of silly games, but the main activity is watching the bride open the gifts the guests are "showering" her with. And of all of the bizarre pre-wedding rituals that strongly reinforce traditional gender stereotypes, bridal showers may win the award for the gender stereotypingest.
Showers also typically don't involve booze. Why IS that? Because "proper" young ladies would never imbibe, let alone get shitfaced at 2 p.m. in the afternoon while surrounded by their aunts and grandmas? Hard to say.
