Russia: Orthodox Baptism Ceremony

Browler attends a Russian Orthodox baptism ceremony of a friends’ baby and shares his impressions: “All the children being baptised (there were about seven of them) got quite wet. The priest was sufficiently liberal with his splashing of the holy water. They also had a small bit of hair cut. (That alone would exclude Leon! Even at one year old, he still hardly has any hair to cut. An indication of being born to an Anglican father, perhaps?)”
