Photo of the day, day 23

Another sign of the times – but times past! I found this little gem the other day. The baby is me, the two people my Godparents at my Christening in June 1960. You can see the difference between then and now in the Catholic tradition – my Godmother has her head covered. Back then it was mandatory for women to cover their heads in church and for men to remove their caps/hats.

I’m told I never made a sound when the ice-cold Holy water was poured over me. I think this is where my love of cold showers originated, LOL!

    Interesting veil! Your godmother looks very young herself!
