Celebrate Russian Ladies on December Name Days

1. December 2011 by Michelle 0 Comments

Ladies who live in Russia and Ukraine certainly have no shortage of holidays. One of the old traditions they still celebrate is Name Days. They originated as a religious custom to honor saints on their feast days, but since many children were often named after these saints, they would enjoy the special celebrations too.
