Just read Tim Lott’s article in the Guardian about how children’s parties have turned into a commercial guilt fest.

He suggests starting a Campaign for Real Childhood Celebration where

” a) birthday parties are limited to six attendees, none of which is required to bring a present and none of which will receive a party bag, b) all celebrations other than Christmas or birthdays will not require the exchange of gifts and cards, c) all parties are limited to two hours maximum, and d) all children over six must be involved in preparing for said party and clearing up after it.”

I’d join.
