A dream about a christening or attending a christening ceremony often symbolizes a fresh start or new beginning. That's the simple dream interpretation, at least.

It can indicate a desire for purification, renewal, or a transformation in your waking life. This dream can also reflect feelings of acceptance and inclusion, as christenings are typically communal events. If you're an active participant in the ceremony, it may suggest a role you're taking on in nurturing or guiding others. Conversely, if you're a passive observer, it could signify a longing for these qualities in your own life.

Dreaming of a christening, or attending one, can be seen as a manifestation of the Freudian concept of the "rebirth fantasy".

Somewhat similarly: This is a deep-seated desire to return to the womb and be reborn, symbolizing a wish for a fresh start or a clean slate. The christening ceremony, a communal event, may also represent the collective unconscious, a term coined by Carl Jung, indicating a longing for unity and acceptance. If you are an active participant, it may signify the ego's desire to assert control or influence over others. If you are a passive observer, it may reflect the id's longing for nurturing and guidance.
