it is also a time where the youth (15 year's old ) have their confirmation. It is like a stepping stone from childhood to adulthood. Some do it in church to renew their bows to God since they had been baptized.
Anyway, I was invited by my friend to her oldest daughter's confirmation. It was a church confirmation.
After the ceremony. A picture together with the priestess, first from the left.
An initiation into the world of adulthood, a point of resistance against an oppressive religious order.
Anyway, it is a big day for the young ones because this day they received lots of money as gifts and many more.
Well at home at last and here is my friend preparing the table.
And her sweet daughter Micaela, after the church confirmation.
The table is set and we are just waiting for the foods:)
But before we eat, Michaela's aunt gave a speech!

Then the foods were served. We ate the dishes together with potatoes and rice.
