Baptism – a Ceremony to Cherish

Baptism or christening is one ceremony that parents of the child cherish in their hearts forever. This ceremony encompasses giving the child a formal name. Apart from its religious significance, the baptism ceremony formally heralds the journey of life of the child in the material world. All this while, mothers are mostly reminded of their painful pregnancy period, but now they thank God for having blessed them with the babies.

The Celebratory Spirit:

The baby christening ceremonies are organized with great fervor and are pretty similar to baby showers or welcomes showers. Decorations for these events are akin to those seen in showers. Aside from religious elements, the atmosphere has a spirit of celebration. The guests join the new parents to celebrate and share the joy of the baby’s arrival. Just like baby showers, it is customary for the guests to bring different types of baby items in form of gifts. Though gifts in baptism ceremonies are predominantly baby toys, you do not need to break your head thinking about the gifts to take to christening ceremony. The ideas for such baby gifts can be found in abundance on various sites on the Internet.

Location for baptism ceremonies is usually a church or the parents’ household. After the religious rites are over, it is conventional to treat the guests with snacks or dinner. It is also a part of the ceremony to give return gifts or favors to the guests before they leave. This is a way of expressing love and gratitude for their participation. The best way to locate great favors is again to take help of Internet. You can even buy the favors online without physically visiting the stores.

The Souvenirs Of The Day:

Baptism ceremonies are extra-special for the parents especially the mothers. They linger long in their minds. They always wish to have christening keepsakes or souvenirs of these ceremonies. Generally, the baby’s outfit on the day of ceremony serves as a keepsake. Accessories like baby bracelet, brooches, little hats, shoes, etc. also make popular keepsakes.

Baptism or christening is a religious ceremony but, with time, it has acquired a festive color. In fact, religion has taken a back seat as far as modern christening ceremonies are concerned. People continue to organize these ceremonies due to poignant reasons. They love to celebrate their parenthood and of course giving their baby a name. These are the reasons that baptism is so popular even with new generation.

Preserving Christening Gowns or Outfits

No matter what the cost of the Christening garment, it will be cherished and saved. While plastic and vinyl provide a covering to the garment and a nice display the helps sell the item, you should understand that long term storage on a plastic hanger or in a plastic bag will cause your special garment to become yellow and deteriorated. Special care should be given any garment that is to be preserved.

There are two ways to preserve a garment. One is to have it cleaned and sealed into a container at a high quality dry cleaner. This process is not only expensive, but it makes the item inaccessible to view and enjoy. Additionally, once the seal is broken, the process must be repeated to continue the preservation.

The important elements of preservation can be achieved without the cost and inaccessibility of sealing the garment. First, the garment should not be in contact with any petroleum products. This includes zippers. Second, the garment should be kept from any chemical contaminants often present in many fabric bags. Third, dust and excessive light should be kept from direct contact with the garment.

The Heirloom Preservation Bag offered by Christening Essentials is made of 100% unbleached muslin and is free of any petroleum or chemicals. It contains a wide buttoned overlap so as to keep the garment free of dust and separated from any plastics. The provided hanger is also made of unbleached material. The base of each bag is extended so special accessories can be placed in the bag as well. The total package is intended to provide the best possible scenario to be found to preserve special occasion garments.

The Heirloom Preservation Bag provides the best alternative we can recommend for long term storage. Any customer wanting to store and maintain a special occasion item will want to consider the Heirloom Preservation Bag.

Baptism Invitations: the Basics of Baptism Invitations

The best part about baptism invitations is that they’re most informal, colloquial, personalized kinds of cards there are. Baptisms are less formal than christenings and less intense than birthday parties. Infant baptisms are fun, free, important events for Christian denominations all across the world. So, who should be invited? Where should it be hosted? And what should the invitations look like, what should they inform the guest of, and when should the momentous event take place?

As to the first question, it’s sufficient to invite very close friends, God parents, and extended family. That last point is contingent on the proximity of relatives to the event, their closeness to the family, their affiliation with the faith, and other circumstantial factors. If they’re in the neighborhood and aren’t appalled at religious services, it’s a must to invite them, although it’s probably cheaper to just make phone calls. On the other hand, in-laws are tough to talk to sometimes so it’s wise to send out invitations.

As to the second question, it should be hosted at your church; in that case, there’s really no need to send out invitations because everyone will already be members of the church, and it will occur, most likely, during the Sunday church service. You can completely skip over the invitations and just schedule the event with your pastor.

Finally, as to the third question, the invitations should look personal, informal, and patently child-like. Infant baptisms need not be any more formal than a homemade collage of baby pictures with glitter and stickers pasted around it. That’s an analogy, of course, but infant baptisms are the least formal of all popular celebrations. They’re much less formal than a Christening and hardly even worth sending out invites for. Everyone at your church will already be there, of course. However, if you’re hosting the event elsewhere, it’s essential that the clergy, church members, friends, and relatives all receive invites. There’s just no reason not to. Afterward, you can all go out and have lunch as a way of celebrating. The invitations should inform people of the following: the baby’s name, a photograph of the baby, and the day, date, time, and place of the infant baptism.

Baptism invitations are ultra-fun, and you can make one by hand and scan it into your computer and print multiple color copies. Or, order from the thousands of pre-made designs on dedicated greeting card
and special event invitational card websites.

All About Water Baptism And The Christian Church
By: Rachel Yoshida

There are countless different religions around the world, but the one that seems to go into almost any nation is Christianity. Whether you are a Christian or not, you have to realize the impact that one man, Jesus Christ, had on the world when he walked the earth for only thirty three years or so. He was not a scholar with even the education of the time to speak of, but the wisdom of his words and parables are repeated many times by even those who do not necessarily believe that he was the son of a mighty God.

Even though Christianity is all based on the belief that Jesus Christ was the son of the God of Abraham, it is extremely diverse in its inner belief system. There are many different denominations of this one religion. The interpretation of the Bible is done in many different ways and there are several differences in which a person can get to heaven according to the assorted denominations.

Catholics believe in sprinkling babies shortly after birth as a form of the water baptism that was started by a prophet named John the Baptist, who was also supposedly the cousin of Jesus. The Christening of a new addition to the family is a big event in Catholic Families and is celebrated largely.

In the other Christian denominations there are differences still. Some sects believe that water baptism is a required element to get into heaven while some others believe that is nothing more than a commandment that Christ wants those who have been Born Again to have done to show the world that they have been saved by their belief in him as the son of God.

Whichever way a particular Christian believes in what the act of baptism signifies, there are more differences still. Since Jesus was baptized in the river, some believe that this is the only place it should be done. Other churches may have a baptism pool inside the church itself. These believe it is not so much where the water is that they are baptized with, but the act of being baptized itself that is essential.

It is amazing how one religion can break down the specifics of this one religion and have so much division in itself as to how specific doctrine should be carried out. In the end for all Christians it is the belief that Jesus Christ was and is the Son of God who will come back to earth to take his followers to heaven one day that will ultimately take them to heaven and according to many Christians that time is near.
