A Look at Ribbon Cutting
The ribbon cutting ceremony at your naming day signifies a new
beginning and unity.
This ceremony requires a piece of ribbon, rope or other material.
The parents hold their child, placing their hands together on
the scissors, and making a single decisive cut through the tethered
ribbon or rope. This is a symbol of new beginnings.
A variation to this, it to have the celebrant tie the ribbons
or rope to the hands of the parents and child, thus, becoming
a hand fasting ceremony (symbolising unity).
During this ritual, you may want to play some mood fitting music
in the background, or have a friend or family member perform a
reading. The addition of these items greatly enhances the ritual.
