What could be better than dedicating one day of the year to yourself? Having two of them! Many Greek names are derived from religious saints, each of whom is commemorated by the church on a particular day. People with the same name as the saint are wished a happy name day on that day, and a party is thrown with family, friends, and even neighbours. Marios and Marias, for example, have two name days each year!
