I was on the phone with a friend this evening and she was telling me about her sons baptism. She married a very Italian man. His family was all born in Italy and they came to the States a while back. She told me that it is an Italian tradition for the God Parents to pick out and purchase the christening outfit for the child. So, he son wore an outfit that she absolutely hated, bu couldn't do anything about it because it was the family tradition. I was about to say there is no way I would do that, until I remembered that my DS wore a dress because it has been in DHs family for several generations. Kinda the same thing I guess...I just had never heard of such a tradition and she made it seem like it happened all the time. Anyone?
