For many, a Christening is an occasion to gift a present with special significance . . a gift with spiritual meaning.
The events of Chritstening and Baptism are often thought of as interchangeable. In reality, Baptism is the occasion when a baby is welcomed into the Christian Church. Holy water (blessed by a Priest) is poured onto a person’s head three times – in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. It symbolises being ‘born again’. Jesus was baptised by his cousin, John the Baptist, in the River Jordan. For Roman Catholics, baptism by water is a sacrament of initiation into the life of the children of God.
Christening, on the other hand, is the actual giving of a Christian name at the time of Baptism.
Presents are usually given at the time of a Christening (just like during First Communion) and, for many, this is an occasion to gift a spiritually inspirational present – a meaningful Christening gift – and a gift with a difference.
