How does name days and names correspond to reality? I wonder why do people care about named days? It is important for people to give especial properties to their names, to assign special values and then to celebrate. After all, it is good to be a special person and to have good qualities. Well, if a name is holy, saint man protects you from bad deeds and evil eye. It is very important in the life. Everyone comes into this world with a certain purpose, lessons and events. Therefore, the given name is not accidental. Because of this reason it is important to celebrate. Clear, this is one out of many approaches.

Let's say, we analyze a lot of Arthurs. We will see that they are all quite different characters and they have completely different ways of life. The only one similarity is that they are people. Like a bee is similar to an ant. It's fun to think that a man and his name is associated with a certain tendency of life and experience. But whether this is true, it is difficult to say.

Many people and nations don't celebrate namedays. I think that it is insignificant day. Maybe I can get some pleasure, when any loved person says: "I welcome you with your name day." But otherwise it is not so important like a birthday ...

Orthodox church calls name day as an Angel's Day. This name is given as a holy name of some Saint. This is the Christian holy name. The mentioning and celebrating is associated with the Saint, his character and achievements, and this is a request to protect the man. Well, in Lithuania we have many pagan Lithuanian names. It's very beautiful, but we have no such Saints as Daumantas or Visgirdas, Liepa or VakarinÄ—. Perhaps we do not know them.

So, as we can see, someone likes to celebrate, someone - does not. It depends on culture, on modern influence, nation and so on.

Therefore don't miss the name days. Celebrate carefully and have fun !!! After all, you can celebrate it like birthday or other holidays. Traditionally the name day celebrations  bind less to some exact form. It is cool, because you can choose the form freely. You may just want to greet someone and that is all. Will it be some festival or not , it depends on you. Importance of the festival is your business. Lets decide individually.

In many cultures names are associated with the days of the year. NameDay is a traditional day for many European and Latin American countries. This is a holiday that is associated with a name and is similar to a birthday. Every day of the year is someone's name-day. In some countries the name day is more important than a birthday, and on that occasion gifts are donated. Usually birthday involves only the closest family members. Name days are celebrated widely, massively. For example Midsummer day or Saint Jon day.
 
This tradition is associated with the Christian saints. The names of saints are marked on the yearly calendar. The Christian Church devotees. believers celebrate commemorating the saint. A feast is celebrated and the saint name is mentioned for the day. For example, the Christian Church celebrated the feast of St. Michael on September 29, and Michael's Michael's name day is on September 29. So this is an old European tradition. Name days are more popular among Catholics and Orthodox, Protestants generally do not worship saints. Name days are traditional for Roman Catholic and Orthodox countries from the Middle Ages. Nowadays that countries celebrates name days, though it has not a clear religious sense. In some countries, there is no clear connection with Christianity.
