Nameday

A Name Day (also known as Angel Day) is the feast day of the patron saint one is named after. This is a special day in the Orthodox tradition, surpassing the importance of a birthday. It is an opportunity to attend church services in honor of the patron saint, to pray and meditate on the life of the patron saint, to celebrate, and to give gifts.
