What does it mean?
How did it all begin?
Even though when I launched this site, I knew little about Irish christening tradition, you know how passionate I am about Irish and Celtic traditions.
I also love reading and learning in general. One of the best things about my business is that I am able to do the research so you don't have to, then put it all together for you in a logical way that will help you understand things better - complete with resources for you in case you want to learn more...
Researching and writing all about Irish christening traditions has been one of the most enjoyable and interesting projects I have undertaken for this business to date.

On the horizon...

- The role of godparents and how it originated in Ireland
- Tips on choosing the right godparents for your child...
- Gifts traditionally given by the godparents...and gifts ideal for an Irish baby

I'll tell you all about a similar Pagan ritual that is inspired by Ireland's ancient Celtic roots...
