Q: We're coming up on the first anniversary of my son's baptism, and I want to start a tradition of making this day extra special. What are some ideas?
A: Remembering our baptism — that we belong to God — is worth celebrating every day, not just once a year. When parents mark a child's baptism anniversary, however, they help emphasize that this relationship to God is something extra special.
Ideas for celebrating abound: display pictures from your child's baptism, serve white frosted cupcakes as dessert, light the same candle used at your child's baptism, make contact with your child's godparents if they don't remember to contact you first, or arrange to place chancel flowers at your church to mark the occasion.
