Hungarian Name Days
Name days and gift suggestions
Is today your nameday? Boldog Név Napot! (Happy Name Day!) Or is it your brother's or sister's, and you need to get them a quick, fun gift to celebrate their special day? Choosing an appropriate gift can be an adventure. If you consider the season, you might find a toy, a cookbook, or a magazine subscription. See the complete calendar below.
Namedays are special days celebrated on a day designated for a person's name. Small gifts are given. It is like a small, low-key birthday celebrated usually just among close friends and family. Why not try a Hungarian toy, like Rubik's Cube?
The traditional gift for women is a flower arrangement or bouquet, and men are usually given a bottle of wine. Children will enjoy an inexpensive toy. What's your favorite gift you ever received for your name day? E-mail us your story and of we like it, we'll publish it here.
