On 6th of May we baptised Bozhidar, the son of my friends Snezha and Christo. The ceremony was held in Burgas. For that reason, just as happened last year, I had to fly very early to Sunny Beach. I went there on 28th of April!
The baptism in the Orthodox Church was very interesting, very different from ours. The ceremony was performed in a small part of the church. Other people came and went, lit candles or just prayed. Nobody disturbed the baptism and the baptism didn’t disturb the others.
After the official Church ceremony we celebrated in a restaurant.
Bozhidar with his parents…
... and with me
Fortunately I had taken my glasses off
No cake – no party!
Three days later we celebrated the first birthday of Bozhidar.
