A Village Baptism - Bonbons!

The tradition after a baptism is for the family to throw sweets and sometimes coins in front of the church for the village children to collect.  They have all arrived, as you see, with their plastic bags at the ready!  Patricia, the mother of baby Nolan, has a beautiful decorated basket which is filled with sweets for the children.


La tradition après un baptême est pour la famille de jeter des bonbons et des pièces parfois en face de l'église pour les enfants du village pour recueillir. Ils sont tous arrivés, comme vous le voyez, avec leurs sacs en plastique au prêt! Patricia, la mère de bébé Nolan, a un beau panier décoré qui est rempli de bonbons pour les enfants.
