A beautiful ritual in which the baby is introduced to the Gods, Goddesses and the elements. Welcomed to this beautiful soul world. It is nice to welcome the child with loved ones and family. An very nice alternative for baptism. It is nice for the child to be honored like this, to be so loved. The ritual creates a warm bath of love for the baby in which it will be received. From that moment on, the baby is part of the community.
Being a priestess I love to lead these ceremonial rituals. They are soft and pure.
Unfortunately, it is not really done anymore to present a child in this way. I would very much like to change that, because it can be a conscious choice for Pagan parents to present their newborn baby besides a handfasting.
