baby naming ceremony?

Postby Freaky on 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.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."
