People you know drink beer and eat chickpeas on friday night after they have a girl? And don’t invite me?

And sing ureh banos?

Yes, yes, and no.

It’s not widely-done here, but I do know some families who feel that believe it or not, the birth of a healthy baby daughter is just as exciting and meaningful as the birth of a son and made the female version of a Sholom Zochor on the Friday night after their birth. I myself could not WAIT to have daughters after my ben habechor was born, but being super traditional, I did not make a simchat bat for any of them (made kiddushim, though).
