Birthday greetings: options
Today, our people are celebrating so many holidays that you can even get lost in their numbers. Therefore, today people like to celebrate not only birthdays and various professional holidays, but also name day celebrated according to the Orthodox calendar.
What holiday is it
Name days are the day when Orthodox believers celebrate the day of a saint or martyr with a certain name. In parallel with this, ordinary people also celebrate this day, calling it the day of the Angel or the day of the Guardian Angel. According to the rules, only baptized people, to whom the priest gave the name of the saint, should celebrate it and accept congratulations on the name of the birthday, but today almost everyone is willing to do it, regardless of their faith.
Going to church
Congratulations on names can take place on completely different scenarios. The main thing, probably, on this day is visiting the church, since the holiday is still a religious one. In addition to congratulations and gifts from friends, in the church you can receive a blessing from the priest and a charge of positive energy.And this will be a very original move, because, unfortunately, today Orthodox traditions are in most cases violated or forgotten altogether.
In a tight circle
One of the options for how best to accept congratulations on birthday parties will be a meeting of loved ones in a warm circle. You can arrange a small feast, bake a cake and please the dear people of various yummy.

If there is absolutely no opportunity to meet with the person and congratulate him on the day of the Angel, you can do it by phone or the Internet. As an option - send sms, mms or virtual postcard. There are many options. No less appreciated and such greetings. Name days - that holiday when these actions will be more than enough.
But if you want, on the day of the Angel you can even give gifts. Here a great option can be various personal items - T-shirts, cups, pens with special inscriptions, addressed to the birthday boy. A great gift can be a cake made to order, made for a specific person.
