The Name Day for Elizabeth is November 19th. My mom always made a special point to call me on my Name Day since I lived out of town. Happy Name Day to all Elizabeths!!!
Hungarians not only have birthdays, but name days as well. Name days are special days celebrated on a day designated for a persons name. These days are picked mainly based on religious traditions and historical events. Name days are celebrated in work places, among friends and among the family. The traditional gift for women is a flower arrangement and men are usually given a bottle of wine. Children may receive a small toy. In Hungary you can notice people with flowers and gifts on popular name days such as Janos or Katalin. Many calendars are printed with the name days.
See http://www.hungarotips.com/customs/ndays.html to look up your name day. We also offer a calendar that features beautiful photographs of Hungary and lists the name days.
December 6th is the name day of Miklós, and children especially love this day because for them it is Mikulás Nap. The Hungarian Santa, called Mikulás, (Mee-ku-lash) visits children on December 6th, St. Nicholas Day. Children shine their shoes or boots then put them outside. If the child has been good, Mikulás leaves the boot filled with goodies – traditionally with candies, tangerines, walnuts, apples, dates and chocolate Mikulás figurines. Also, most children get small toys and books. If the child has been a little bad, the boot will contain a bundle of twigs (like a “switch”). If the child has been naughty, then they get lumps of coal or potatoes. Since no child is all good or all bad, most get the switch and the treat. There is no Mrs. Santa in Hungary, but Mikulás often travels with one or two small evil goblins, called krampusz (kromm-puhs).
