Does anybody else here not care about their b-day ? It's not an 'age' thing for me... Mine's in January, and it was always a drag. Everybody's broke from the holidays, middle o' winter, etc. It just was never a, "Whoopee!" day for me ?
The Greeks have what they call, "Name Day". Folks don't celebrate their actual birth date. As the Greeks would have it, everybody (mostly) is named after some biblical something-or-other. When your name pops up, PRESTO ! It's your name day.
Have lots of snacks & sweets handy for visitors, they come 'round to see you.
Kinda different, ey ?
