To Create a Sense of Belongings. Christening Gifts as Materialization of Feelings

Hagström, Charlotte LU (2007) Second International Conference of theSIEF Working Group on The Ritual Year In [Host publication title missing] p.142-146
Abstract
Christening gifts are on the one hand very concrete and material. They have a value, both economically and emotionally. But on the other hand they also have a function that is neither concrete nor material. They express feelings, hopes, and dreams of belonging and community. The gift has a meaning for both the one who receives it, and the one who presents the gift.
