Christening naming ceremony
Many parents want to officially welcome their children into the family fold. However, not all want to go down the traditional route of a Church Christening.

Rather than welcoming the child into the church, parents choose to welcome them into their family and community.
In this interview listed below Rachel Fry discusses the two traditions and has advice for parents planning such a celebration!
