Blessing Way
 n.— «The Blessing Way has been adapted as an alternative baby shower for spiritual moms in recent years. This is much less commercial and much more personal, intimate way to honor the blessed event of a birth. During Blessing Way celebrations for moms-to-be, the expectant mother is really pampered by her loved ones. They may brush her hair or give her a foot massage. Poems are read and promises of aid during delivery and after the baby is borned are voiced. Candles are lit and symbolic gifts are presented.» —by Kristin Madden, Liz Roberts Magickal Crafts Oct. 30, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
