Baptism Day


Today, water baptism is most readily identified with Christianity, where it symbolizes the cleansing (remission) of sins, and the union of the believer with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection so that he becomes one of Christ's Faithful. Most Christian groups practice some form of literal water-based baptism and agree that it is important, yet strongly disagree with other groups regarding any or all of several aspects of baptism, such as:

* form of the baptism
* recipients of baptism
* meaning/effects of the act of baptism

However, a few Christian groups assert that water-based baptism has been supplanted by the promised baptism of the Holy Spirit, and water baptism was unnecessarily carried over from the early Jewish Christian practice.

Baptism Favor


Baptism ceremonies are an important event that signifies the start of a child's spiritual life. As a common courtesy to guests who attend these ceremonies, the parents of the child or the host of the event often obtain baptism favors as a gift. Here are some themes and ideas that are appropriate for these occasions:

1. Cross - The holy cross is by far the most common theme for baptism favors. There are many interpretations of the meaning of the cross. However, the cross is widely accepted as the sign of Christianity. Some baptism favors with this theme are cross-shaped soap, candles engraved with the cross symbol, and chocolate bars with a cross on the customized wrapper.

2. White - The color white symbolizes life, joy, happiness, and purity. Yellow is another color that is often used as it can also symbolize goodness, happiness, and brightness. Sometimes these colors are used together, for example, a white angel with yellow halo.

3. Doves - Doves are a popular theme. These calm, quiet, and elegant birds symbolize purity and peace.

4. Angels - Angels symbolize light, goodness, and divinity. They are often portrayed as humans with wings and halos and have much religious significance in both the Old and New Testaments. Angels are a popular theme on invitations, candles, and personalized candy wrappers.

5. Priests and Holy Men - Priests and holy men offer blessings and guidance to people in spiritual matters.

6. Candles - Candles are commonly used in meditation and religious events and make a great gift or baptism party favor for any religious ceremony.

7. Bible - The bible is a symbol of religious perseverance. Most bible themed favors are drawn as a white, black, or brown book with a holy cross on it.

There are various other themes for christenings, but these are some of the most common. Most guests that attend these events are religious, so these ideas will be helpful in finding the right baptism favors. Nevertheless, many people choose to give baptism favors that do not have these themes, but instead have baby-related themes, like stork and baby bottle themes.
