A name day is a tradition in many countries in Europe that consists of celebrating the day of the year associated with one’s given name.

Name days (in Hungarian: nΓ©vnap) in Hungary are very popular, often as much as a person’s actual birthdate. A woman is typically given flowers on her name day by acquaintances, including in the workplace. A bottle of alcohol is a common gift for men on their name day. Children frequently bring sweets to school to celebrate their name days. Name days are more often celebrated than birthdays in workplaces, presumably because it is simpler to know the date since most calendars contain a list of name days.

Do you celebrate name days?

  1. No names day in the UK but here in Poland it’s a huge hit. Dhs is soon in fact, although we dont really celebrate as such anymore. Which I like. I rather dislike all the family get togethers.
    I wish V would Apple’s like that. Looks like BB#1 enjoyed it.

      • On the 25th of March, the Annunciation of Maria ( Mother of Jesus).
        It is a national holiday in Greece because at that day th eGreek revolution against the Ottoman Empire started.
        I am going to be in Greece at that time.
        I joke often telling that all the parades and celebrations are for me πŸ™‚
