My beautiful two week old daughter is getting baptised this Sunday.
Do you think I should bother with a Christening Piece, and if so, what should it contain?

what is a Christening piece?

In some areas it is customary to give a 'Christening Piece' or 'Christening Bit' to the first child (of the opposite sex from your baby) you met after your child was christened (so we would be looking to give our 'Christening Piece'to a boy.)
It's meant to share the family's luck with others.

Godson was christened recently we had a Christening piece. Think it's good to keep this traditions going. Xx
