Did you have a menarche (first period) ceremony? What was it like? Who was there? What gifts did you get? If you have a daughter, will you (or did you) give her a menarche ceremony?

No, I did not have a Ceremony. And I'm 500% grateful that I didnt. I got my first period when I was 12, I was in the middle of Science class. The only person I told about getting my period was my older sister. The only reason I told her was so I could borrow a pad, and use her as a taxi to go to the pharmacy to buy pads for myself.If my father had known I got my period he would have avoided eye contact with me for a month. If he had to give or sit through a "ceremony" about my period, his face would have turned blood red and he would have died of embarrasment. A few years later when I was 16 and we were doing some summer travelling together, he made the mistake of asking why I kept "holding my stomach" one day, my resonse was to snap back in an evil tone "CRAMPS". He turned his head and walked away as fast as possible. Young girls arent "proud" to get thier first period. Its scary, even if you've been well educated about it, its still an unknown experience. Dont embarrass girls more than they already are.
