Yeah, I didn't realize it still had religious implication...I always figured the "God" was a bit of vestigal nomenclature.

My godparents are Jewish...it was always just if something had happened to my parents, they would've raised my sister and me.

Seems like godparents in the traditional sense have a pretty interesting role to play.

That's an odd choice. I mean, obviously if your parents had died, your godparents wouldn't have raised you as Quakers would they?

My parents didn't become Quakers until I was 5 or so; I don't think religion was really considered in the choice...just that they would've been excellent parents to my sister and me. A more interesting possibility is that I could have been raised Jewish depending on at what age I had moved in with them.

I think my parents cared more about the quality of parenting than the faith I would be raised in.

Being "home". Everything is totally familiar and completely foreign at the same time. Maybe its the jetlag but I feel like I'm on drugs.

As far as I understand (at least as a Roman Catholic), godparents would be the people to raise the child if the parents were to die and were chosen as sponsors of the child's Baptism. This is a separate role from the person who is responsible for guiding the child's formal entry into the church who is the child's Confirmation sponsor. At least religiously that's what the relationship is, culturally it probably varies a lot.

Normally,they would have to....

In reality,it is a different matter..

Before being Godparents was an important gesture,now it is more a symbolic one..

I don't get this, but maybe my sense of style just isn't developed enough:

Haha, yeah it looks like he tied a half windsor! (Hard to tell because of the angle though. Maybe it's okay after all.)

Forget the tie, I don't understand people buttoning the top button of a polo or a Henley. I once heard it referred to as the "paedophile button" and since then I have taken great pains to point out the name to any friend who wears one.

yeah, half-windsor is the only knot that fills the collar gap properly. four-in-hand is generally too narrow to get the job done and looks really awkward.

For polo shirts, I always go with the Shelby knot. Don't know why, just feels right.

(I rocked the Shelby knot in the 1990s. I thought I was pretty cool for doing that!)
