My Confirmation

31 May

VincentconfirmationWe are in year 8 now, that’s the time of certain rites of becoming an adult. 😉  Here people either celebrate Confirmation or Jugendweihe.

Confirmation is a ceremony for 13 or 14 year-old teenagers at  church; from this day on they are full members of the congregation and  have the same rights and responsibilities as an adult.

My Confirmation was on 12th May, 2013. It was a rainy day in the morning but later, for the photos,  it was sunny :). After the ceremony at church I celebrated with my family. We took lots of pictures with my Grandma & Grandpa and Dad & Mum and the rest of the family…but the camera was out of order so we  only have pictures of the ceremony in the church.

We celebrated into the night, because it was the most important day in my life 🙂 🙂 🙂

    @ Vincent: a rite in the process of growing up . Very, very important. We tend to forget the necessary steps to adulthood, whether associated with religion or not. No wonder it was one of your most important days in your life, up to now.

    Dear Vincent, most of us have Confirmation, too, the age is about the same. We conceive it as a time in which you should realise what gifts you have and how you could make the most of them. Then you should understand that everybody is important for their contribution in changing the world 🙂
