The First Holy Communion is a Catholic ceremony, which marks a child or adult’s first reception of the Sacrament of the Eucharist. It is an extremely important event in a Catholic family’s life and is marked with celebrations, family gatherings and festive parties as well as gift-giving and special white clothes.
The white symbolizes purity and newness while gifts are mainly religious in nature. However, lately cash too has become the gift of choice for First Communions. The First Communion generally takes place when a child is around 7 or 8 years of age.
