Every day, the calendar on the kitchen wall of many French people, suggests celebrating a saint, and all the people who have that same first name at the same time. It’s your name day!
Your name day is almost like your birthday. People greet you with “Bonne fête!” and they give you a small gift or flowers.
Not all French families celebrate this day. It depends on the family tradition.
My name Day in on September 19th! La Saint Emilie est le 19 septembre.
Usually my closest family sends me a message to say "Bonne fête" and my sisters give me a little gift!
I live in the United States and I don't think Americans celebrate name day.
If you live in another country, do you celebrate Name Day?
