Q:

What is an appropriate christening gift?

A:

An appropriate christening gift can include such items as a towel, Bible, jewelry or cross. A christening ceremony is an event during which a child is given a Christian name as a way of admission to a Christian church.

A person can opt to give religious items, such as a set of rosary beads, a Bible or a cross. Contemporary gifts, such as blankets, baby clothes and towels, are also suitable gifts for a child. Family members usually give traditional gifts. For example, a godfather can give gold jewelry as a gift. Gifts of money can be a good choice, but it's important to first know the tastes of a particular family.

    What are the differences between a christening and a baptism?

    A:

    Although the words christening and baptism are often used interchangeably, baptism refers to a holy Christian sacrament in which water is used to claim the child in Jesus' name, and a christening refers to a ceremony in which the infant is officially given a name. Just as with baptisms, many christenings incorporate holy water, leading some to suggest that all christenings are baptisms, although this is not the case.
