A secular naming, also known as a secular baptism or welcoming ceremony, is a symbolic ceremony to celebrate the birth or the welcoming of a child.
It can also be carried out when the child is a little older, to celebrate his or her first years and highlight the importance of the years to come. The benefit of having a toddler is that he or she will be able to take part in the ceremony. And we know how much kids love to celebrate!
A secular baptism may also serve as an opportunity to welcome an adopted child into your family and to celebrate this new bond.
First and foremost, it’s about letting all that joy in and sharing it with people you care about. Through this ceremony, you can share the parenting style you envision, one that is based on openness and spiritual freedom.
The arrival of a child is a meaningful event that brings a new dimension to the family and makes you look at your life differently and ponder a lot of things.
By celebrating it fully, you’ll give this event its rightful place within your family.
