A Naming Ceremony for a child can include grandparents, siblings, uncles, aunties, guardians or godparents. Your naming ceremony can include a ritual, for example a "Sand Ceremony" or the "Lighting of candles", a "Time Capsule" or something special of your own. There are many ways to symbolise this special day.
Is the coming together or joining of two or more people or of two families into one new family. It is a very simple ritual that can be incredibly meaningful and powerful. Each person has a different coloured sand and they pour their sand into a clear container, where the layers can be seen by all. This is the representation of all who are pouring sand, becoming one.
The unity candle ceremony uses two small candles with a larger candle (called the "united candle") in the center. The parents of the child, both light their smaller candle and use their candles to jointly light a larger candle for the child.
A sealable container (Box, Tin, Glass) is used to collect momentos from those who attended the day. The container is put away for when the child turns 21 and given to them on their 21 birthday.
Balloons are released at a set time to represent the new beginning of a new life.

Celebration of Life
I am a very compassionate and loving person who has experienced personal loss several times. If you would like to discuss a Service for your loved one, I am available at anytime for a no obligation discussion. I will come to your place of choice, or you can come to mine. I will explain to you and family what is involved and give you information so you can make a choice about what you would like and who and how you would like other family members or friends involved in the service. Eulogy, readings, poems, prayers and music makeup the service.
