Help to maintain a longstanding Polish Catholic tradition by acknowledging relatives, friends, and colleagues who are celebrating their “name day,” corresponding with the feast day of a saint of the same name.  Where there is more than one saint of the same name who has been assigned a day, your “name day” is the one closest to your birthday. It is customary in the Polish tradition to acknowledge the name day of a relative or friend:
July 5: Antoni, Bartłomiej, Jakub, Karolina, Michał
July 6: Dominik, Dominika, Łucja, Lucja
July 7: Antoni, Kira, Piotr, Benedykt, Cyryl
