When I was growing up we celebrated Names' Days with a little gift. My mom would also make the favorite dinner of the person. My husband and I give little gifts to each other. We celebrate ours within two weeks of each other in December so it is a busy month.

Wish I could help. We really don't do a whole lot except maybe go out for dinner.

Respect life.

My sons feast day is today, September 1st OS (Symeon the Stylite)and its also the first day of the church new year. We usually have a celebratory dinner and a cake. Now that I started spark I am looking for ideas that don't focus on food so much. I know that kind of goes against the grain of orthodoxy celebrations because we go through the cycle of fasting and feasting but my crew are all on the heavy side. Does anyone celebrate their families names days in other ways?
