Hi there, worldtravelers!
After strolling around in the picturesque Prague in the Czech Republic, I traveled to the country right next to it: Slovakia. Time to hit the woods and go hiking in the mountains!
Did you know in Slovakia they celebrate their name day? Every day of the year corresponds with several names. When a child is born, they get a name that’s in the list of name days. Celebrating your name day is almost as important as celebrating your birthday in Slovakia! Unfortunately my name is not in the list, because it’s not a Slovak name. But I love this tradition!
Does your country have a tradition like this?
