PostSubject: Bulgarian Name Days   Wed Mar 24, 2010 10:40 pm

First topic message reminder :

Bulgarian Name Days are the Bulgarian expression of a custom practised in most countries in which the Eastern Orthodox or Greek Orthodox religion is the official denomination.

A Name Day is a day of the year set aside on the calendar of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church to celebrate the name and life of a certain Saint. Everyone named after that specific saint has cause for celebration, somewhat similar to a large scale birthday.

Some name days are associated with certain specific traditions. For example, on St. Nick's Day a stuffed carp has to be cooked and served at dinner, while on St. George's Day a lamb must be prepared.

Even though name days in general are usually associated with saints in Bulgaria some of them are in honour of important figures from the history of Bulgaria.

Some common name days:

* St. Cyril and Metodi's (Methodius's) Day.
* Vasil's Day
* Ivan's Day
* St. Georgi's (George's) Day
* Dimitar's day
