latvian culture name day

What is name day in Latvia? How to celebrate it?

Well we don’t have name day culture in my country. So it was strange for me when i heard name day at first time. But later i learned that some countries seriously celebrate this and it is as important as birthdays. Every name has a day for itself on calendar. And when you names day arrive people celebrate this day as they do on your birthday. It is really an important day for them. So check the list below and note the names of your Latvian friends. So when their name day comes you may celebrate. They will definetly like it!

What you should say for to celebrate name day of a Latvian?

“Daudz laimes vārda dienā!” I don’t know the exact meaning of this but this is the word you need to tell or write to your Latvian friend. And i repeat! Do not skip this day. This special day is also in Russian, Polish, Italian culture as i have read on internet. You should celebrate your friends if you have friends from these countries also. It is strange tradition (For me at least) but it is important.
