Rites of Passage
One of the greatest things about living in a multicultural country like Australia is that there are so many different Rites of Passage that one can bear witness to, I have been to Hungi in celebration of a young boys first haircut, i have made my First communion, been baptised and made my confirmation i have also been to weddings and funerals, these are all Rites of passage, please scrap a page about a Rite of Passage that was yours or somebody you know. For better information on rites of Passage go check out Wikipedia.
