What's in a Name (Day)?

According to Greek Orthodox tradition, every day of the year is dedicated as the feast day of a Christian saint or martyr. Your "Name Day" celebration (nameday.gif (939 bytes)) is the feast day of the saint you are named after. In Greece, a person's Name Day is celebrated and is considered more important than a Birthday.
