Christening for Baby Steve

Mikael and  Swadou held the christening for their new baby boy two weeks after he was born.  Guess what they called him, Steve after our very own!  The whole village get involved with the preparation of the christening, Swadou’s family prepare the vegetables and food and Mikael made a red sauce called Benachin which is eaten with rice.  He also provided the whole village with a lamb which is stewed in a cooking pot over hot coals.  After the christening it is tradition that everyone from the village gets to hold the baby.  Its also customary to have a drink called ‘Attaya’ ingredients of which are; water, loose gunpowder green tea leaves and sugar.  It is boiled in a pot over charcoal and once it is ready the tea is poured into a small drinking glass from a height of about half a meter. This creates the desired foam and is repeated for about 10 minutes until a good foam head forms in the glasses. Then, it’s back into the kettle and back onto the coals to heat up once again.
