A baptism (or christening) is an extremely special day for both parents and the child a-like. It’s symbolises the start of the childs religious journey, accepting Jesus into their life and beginning as a Christian. For parents it represents their baby’s first steps into faith and a real celebration of accepting the love of God.
A Bar Mitvah, if you weren’t that sure, is a Jewish celebration that takes place when a boy turns 13 and is seen as becoming a fully responsible member of the Jewish community. The young man must read from the Torah and lead a prayer for the whole service. It’s one of the most important moments in a Jewish mans life and considered incredibly significant within the faith.
If you’ve been invited to attend a Bar Mitzvah, perhaps to a family member of yours (brother, grandson, cousin, nephew etc) or you just know someone who’s son is about to have theirs then you may want to send or give a card.
Birthday wishes tend to be very similar in their nature. Most are simple greetings that say happy birthday in one way or another. Some can be a bit more expressive but follow the same sort of pattern in wishing the recipient a happy or enjoyable birthday. Which is fine if that’s what you want. But sometimes you might want to say something a little different. For example if the person who’s birthday it is has a strongly held faith then you may prefer to send them a religious birthday message.
When writing a card message for someone you may want to include religious words or greetings. If you have a religious family member or friend then you may decide that this is more appropriate and fitting for them. A religious message can be uplifting, thoughtful and comforting. There are also many different religious sayings that fit all different types of ocassion, be it a birthday or wedding through to obvious religious festivals like Easter and Christmas and even something less important like a person’s retirement or anniversary.
