I didn't mean my answer to be the One True Answer or make anyone else wrong or anything. I was just in a hurry on my phone. That's what it was supposed to be about in the DDC when my youngest was born. There's no reason it has to mean that, but it sounds like it's a tradition whose meaning got lost over time! I think it originally got started with Blessingway ceremonies in real life.
