Like a christening, the rite of confirmation is a serious religious ceremony.
According to Catholic doctrine, confirmation is one of the major sacraments available to young people - usually around the ages of 12 or 13 - when they receive the Holy Spirit.
Confirmation marks a Christian's traditional entry into adulthood and, although the church ceremony may be solemn, the day also calls for a celebration!
Your confirmation party can be as casual, or as fancy - as you please. It can be held at a
reception hall, complete with DJ and dancing - or feature a fun family gathering around the backyard barbecue. Tween and teen party themes like sports parties for boys, or a Hollywood theme party for girls, are also very popular.
No matter what kind of party the family decides upon, confirmation gifts are also usually in order . The guest of honor may sometimes be given religious medals, commemorative prayer books, charm bracelets, or gifts of money tucked inside Confirmation Day greeting cards.
You may also opt for
teen gift ideas appropriate to the age group.
