A Christening or Baptism is a religious service to introduce a person to into the Church by which a person is initiated, purified, or given a name. Whilst "christening" is reserved for the baptism of infants, the service is not only for infants. Adult baptism are becoming more frequent. Traditionally the service is carried out within a couple of months of a baby's birth. The Religious ritual is intended to welcome and initiate the baby into the Church and instill some of the basic Christian principles and values into the child. Grumleys has lovely Christening gift ideas suitable for baby Christening or baby Baptism as well as Naming Days.
Godparents form an integral part of the Christening or Baptism Service. Traditionally Godparents are friends or family of the infant who are selected by the parents to help them raise the child according to the religious faith. In modern times this concept has evolved into more of an "honorary parent" in the child's life rather than a religious instructor. Godparents usually present a child with a christening gift on the day of the christening.
A naming day is the non-secular version of a christening or baptism. Naming Days are usually a day to welcome a new baby to the world. They often involve speeches, readings (non religious), music, poems and symbolic gestures such as candle lighting. Instead of choosing Godparents for the infant, parents will choose life mentors or sponsors to be a part of the baby's life. To mark the special day the new baby is often presented with naming day gifts or naming day presents. Presents for baby naming day make precious keepsakes that the child will have forever.
In the Jewish faith there is a religious ceremony for baby boys and another for baby girls. For baby boys, a ceremony called Brit milah welcomes the child to a covenant with God. This ceremony is held on the eighth day of the child's life and involves a ceremony which includes the naming of the child followed by a celebratory meal.
For baby girls the ceremony is Zeved habat and during this ceremony there is thanksgiving, religious readings and the name giving prayer. This ceremony is performed within the first month of the baby girl's birth.
