baby naming ceremony?

Postby Freaky » Wed Jan 08, 2014 10:09 pm

My wench and I have recently had an addition to our family and I was wondering about Pastafarian equivalent to naming ceremonies/baptism/christenings.

Do we have any official (or not so official) ceremonial procedures for naming our daughter? Obviously there will be beer, pasta, and full pirate regalia.

i would recommend reading the Gospel of the flying spaghetti monster before asking a doctrinal question like that.

i know the answer to your question but you should find it out for yourself by reading the gospel of the flying spaghetti monster. i have personally read it 4 times. the book is being sold on amazon right now for $8.70. you can probably get an used copy cheaper than that.

I kinda remember a discussion on this subject a while back.

I believe the outcome was along the lines of not wanting to have the equivalent of a formal christening, as it would be making the decision for the child about joining a religion, rather than allowing them to make the choice themselves later on. However having a naming or "welcome to the world" ceremony was considered just fine.

However I don't think it got any further beyond that - certainly not to suggested rites or rituals.

There have been a few Pastafarian weddings over the years - basically the participants designed the format that suited them the best (there are some lovely vids on YouTube of ceremonies even). Maybe you could adopt the same - design something that reflects your joy at a new life in the world. I suggest pirates and grog be included but that is optional.

Just let us know what you chose - and maybe piccies as well.

I'm annoyed with myself for not springing to Freaky's defense here. The poor lad asked a reasonable question and received an in-your-face and blatantly rude reply, albeit on the occasion of the birth of his child. Not surprisingly he disappeared shortly after and has not been back since. For the sake of posterity I should like to mention NancyDelia/Jjuicegiver/Juicegiver/PeacefulSongs/EricWhitfield or whatever the hell he wants to call himself now or in the future is a complete and utter bastard.
