This is my first post but been a long time lurker for a while wink

We had our AO granted on Monday, and we are thinking about arranging a naming ceremony to celebrate our 16 month old DS.

I just wondered what different things people did when they got the AO. Have people had christenings/naming ceremonies? Or did something special on the celebration hearing day? Or just kept it low key and quiet?

Our LO were old enough to understand so we had a bit of a family party on celebration hearing day. Worked wonders for their sense of permanence.

We went out for a family meal, and then around 2 months later had a celebration barn dance for around 100 friends and family. Though ours were 9 and 4 at the time so older.

Thank you for your replies smile We have booked a registry office for a naming ceremony and then we are having a party afterwards with family and friends. We have invited his guide parents and family along to the celebration hearing and will do something nice with them afterwards smile
