This question already has an answer here:

In The Flash 4x04 “Elongated Journey Into Night”, there is a scene in the final act when Joe arrives at Star Labs and shows a box of cigars to Team Flash, handing them out to everyone. The scene is silent except for some music, so we can’t hear anybody. However, they seem super excited in a way that I wouldn’t expect for people who don’t appear to be smokers.

Why did Joe give cigars to the team? And why were they so happy about it?

As I recall Joe had just been informed he was to be a father again.

The passing out of cigars to celebrate pregnancy or birth is a tradition in the US.

    Huh, I live in the US and have never heard of this “timeless” tradition. Maybe it’s a regional or generational thing. – Thunderforge Dec 2 '17 at 16:23
