Today it was Oliwia's name day.

She brought a treat for every body in the class.

Polish Name Day Tradition
If you have ever seen a Polish calendar, you may have noticed that each day of the year has a name on it.

Names appear on almost every Polish calendar and indicate what is called imieniny or “name day”, the feast day of the saint for whom you are named.

In Poland, name days are a special time for family and friends to gather.

Sometimes friends and family simply stop by to wish the person celebrating their name day Wszystkiego najlepszego! (All the best!) and sto lat! (A hundred years!).
