We are expecting our first child in a few weeks, and our family is already asking about a Christening. We’re not religious, though. How can we celebrate our newborn without having a religious ceremony?
Many couples find themselves in the same position. They want to celebrate the birth of their baby, but don’t feel that a religious ceremony is right for them. Whether it’s because they aren’t of a particular faith or because each parents follows a different religion, it can leave them in a confusing position.
However, there is an easy solution to this problem. Having a naming ceremony for your baby is an excellent way to bring family and friends together to celebrate the birth. It can function in a way very similar to most religious ceremonies, but in a non-denominational way. You can even use it to designate godparents for your baby.
The main goal of this type of event, though, is to share the joy of this new life. Having your friends and family together in this way is also a great way to introduce your baby to everyone. This can even help you keep from having too many guests in those early days when you’re just finding your feet as new parents!
