Name Day

 In Corfù, as in the rest of Greece, the name day is more important than the birthday.
The choice of personal names is important for Greeks, in fact they always give to the new babies the names of the grandparents in their memory.

Moreover the name days are well-known since the Greek names are all present in the calendar as names of Saints, while is more difficult to remember all the birthdays.

For this reason everybody, in their name day, prepare a banquet for those who will pay a visit to give wishes.
