Baptisms bring great happiness to the Greek family. Family and friends celebrate the "rebirth" of the young child and the birth of the new relationship with the godparent. It is the responsibility of the "nouna & nouno" to purchase the child's new clothing, the cross, special oil and a baptismal set which includes everything necessary for the sacrament of chrismation.
After lighting the decorated baptismal candle, the priest, the godparent holding the infant, and children carrying similar candles, walk around three times; symbolizing a dance of joy for the new Christian who has been added to the church.
