Christening and naming ceremony

Christening has been important to Estonians over the years; it insured that the child is protected from the evil. The ceremony was held at a church or at home. The name for the baby was chosen after a grandparent or godparent, also after a holyday near the date of the child’s birth date. Naming ceremony lasted for days.

At our museums wooden church, Sutlepa chapel you can have a beautiful christening ceremony and a nice party at Kolu inn or on the swing grounds.
