What gifts did you get?
I had a peter rabbit crockery set.
b) fuck knows, I was three months old.
So i'm going straight to hell
You'll miss out on all the proper hell stuff.
I'm definitely going to proper hell
you're not one of doug's children if you're unbaptised and as such not burdened by those laws.
you'll just have to continue to endure the absence of doug's light.
what a relief
soul is effectively already forfeit you don't have to worry about repentance or any of that stuff.
you should definitely fund a nun and punch her this weekend.
b) no idea
c) My Mum's best friend was supposed to be my Godmother, but is an atheist, so they made a certificate declaring her my Fairy Godmother, just for a laugh. It's still on my wall somewhere.
Despite the fact I was raised in a church-going Christian family
Bit weird that actually, I wonder why I wasn't
you'd have burst into flames.
you weren't baptised on H&S grounds.
I don't know what I got for it, aside from two sets of godparents (who, to their credit, always remember my birthday).
There are pictures of me as a baby in what appears to be a dress. I carry it off very well.
I got a wallet, still use it.
Got a pair of shithouse godparents though
No church wedding for me then... (awesome).
b) A gold cross on a chain and a silver napkin ring engraved with my initals.
Brave decision by my parents to potentially condemn their child to limbo. I would've hedged and gone with it to be on the safe side.
I was actually christened twice (like New York, I'm so good they named me twice) actually it's because I was premature so the (I guess) hospital chaplin baptised me incase I died beforehand.
Which is kind of sweet and kind of scary (cos of the dying not the religious conotations).
Prob not allowed to do that now unless you ask (my parents aren't particulary religious so I doubt they asked specially) but it wasn't that long ago (early 1980's).
b) Can't rememeber.
My parents felt it was a decision me and my brother should take ourselves if we wanted to when we were old enough rather than something they should foist on us when we were too young to have our own opinions.
I've never done it. I've got a feeling my brother actually did get Christened a couple of years ago because he had been asked to be a godparent and couldn't do it unless he was Christened but I might have invented that story.
My Dad did admittedly train to be a Catholic priest in his youth but the experience basically convinced him God probably didn't exist.
There are very few circumstances under which I'd take on that sort of responsibility.
My parents were evangelical Christians, shit sucked.
CofE for me. It got me into a decent school so I'm not going to complain even though I think it's a load of tosh.
Wasn't bothered about getting my daughter christened but my wife is a catholic (baptised, confirmed) so daughter is the same. Figured we'd get it done and then she can make her own mind up whether or not she wants to carry it on or not.
Don't remember what presents I got but the little one seemed to get bowl and spoon sets that you're never supposed to open.
