A Baptism

 

  

The tradition of baptisms in Mexico are filled with the beauty of colors, delicious food, and the fiesta.  The baptism day starts with the family getting ready for the baptism ceremony, then heading to the church making phone calls on the way coordinating the arrival of the padrinos (godparents) , and then having the baptism ceremony.  After leaving the church the family and friends head back home for the fiesta…usually including delightful mole, carnitas, arroz, and sopa de fideo.  The day wouldn’t be complete without a few ranchera songs or corridos for entertainment.

I attended a baptism October, 2013 in Guanajuato, Mexico.  The beauty of the colors, the children, the food, and most of all the family bond was breath taking!
