When your godchild is born, you’re expected to hook up the baby with their first
name tag piece of jewelry.
And he or she better have it ready to wear the day they leave the hospital.
If it weren’t for the baptism, you probably wouldn’t become a comadre / compadres… So you better pitch in for the fiesta.
Con el bolo. It’s the only time you’ll see kids diving for coins instead of candy.
Religious ceremonies aside, la comadre is looked to to bring food for parties or to help cook.
And el compa usually handles las cervezas.
When it comes to bigger parties, los compadres are expected to pitch in some $$ para la banda.
From then on, you goddaughter/godson better receive the best gift from you.
Don’t disappoint with cheap gifts.
Comadres *have* to keep each other updated on the latest chisme.
Las comadres y compadres have each others’ backs.
More importantly, las comadres y los compadres have to love each other the most through thick and thin.
But above all, this is a promise to guide this little one through life.
And teach them between right and wrong.
And love them unconditionally.
