Greek Name Day Calendar

Greek Holy Days

Below you will find a list of the “twelve great feasts,” the high holy days of the Greek Orthodox Church. We’ve also listed out the dates for Greek Easter for the next decade so you can start planning dinner now!

Greek Name Days

According to Greek Orthodox tradition, nearly every day of the year is dedicated to some Christian saint or martyr. When someone in Greece is named after one of these saints, that saint’s celebration day becomes their “name day” and is celebrated much like their actual birthday. For instance, St. Ignatius or Ignatios, was a Patriarch of Constantinople in the late 800s. His name day in the Greek church is December 20th and anyone named Ignatios shares this name day, even if they were born in May!

Greek Boston celebrates every name day, so be sure to follow us on Twitter and keep an eye peeled for your name day! Xronia Polla!
