Dear Short Answers:
What’s the deal with baby showers? Until this summer I never heard of them. Do I have to go?

Dear Janey:
It seems to be a millennial thing — like big weddings and social media. Maybe they feel the need to connect after all that texting.  No, you don’t have to go, but you might enjoy participating in what was once a historical ritual intended to feather the nest for new parents and celebrate a major life passage.
