The holidays are stressful enough without adding "secret-keeping" duties for a gender reveal on top of everything else.
One woman is seeking advice from the internet after she accidentally ruined her sister-in-law's gender reveal on Thanksgiving night. She asked the Reddit "Am I the A-Hole?" community if she really is a terrible person for ruining this sacred event, or if her SIL is overreacting.
I can’t believe I’m about to type this crap but my sister-in-law asked me to be the “secret keeper” for her baby (first one) and have a gender reveal at Thanksgiving. As in, the ultrasound tech would give them (the parents) an envelope which would be mailed to me, and then I planned a whole part of thanksgiving to be a big hoorah where they and everyone else find out what they’re having. I planned this for weeks, I set it up days in advance, I took every precaution to not tell anyone what the baby was. I was gonna kill it!
