Names Day
#5
Serbs are one of the only Catholic/Orthodox peoples who don't generally keep a name day. We keep our 'slava' the Saint's Day upon which our first ancestor joined the Church. Probably because when the Serbs converted they kept using pagan names (e.g., 'Vuk'=wolf) and there were no Saints with those names.
