The Naming Ceremony
Yesterday, Dipo and Lola went to their uncle’s house. Their aunt gave birth to a baby girl last week. Yesterday was the naming ceremony.
First, they sang a hymn. Grandpa put some water and some palm oil on the baby’s lips. He touched her face with some salt and a kola nut. Then he showed her some money. She held the money in her little hand. Everyone laughed.
Next Grandpa called out the names. The baby’s mother chose the name Monisola. Grandpa touched her foot on the ground. It was her first step.
Later there was a feast. In the evening there was music and dancing. Lola and Dipo had a wonderful time.
They got home late. They were very tired but very happy.
