blessing-way
 n.— «Consider a blessing-way type ceremony in lieu of a traditional shower. This can be adapted to just about every religion I can think of, as well as to people who are not religious. This gets away from the whole material gift thing and moves into more of a “generousity of spirit” realm. Especially when it is focused on positive thoughts and wishes for the coming birth and new baby, it is so special to treat a mom to something like this.» —“Re: baby showers” by Jennifer Rosenberg Usenet: misc.kids.pregnancy May 22, 2002.
