Dedene wrote about fête days in France, and I've previously encountered a similar concept in Finland, where they have "name days". Unfortunately, since I don't have a Finnish name, I missed out on that one - and I was disappointed, let me tell you, because an extra excuse for a party is not something I'd be turning down in a hurry.
So I clicked through from Dedene's post to find out whether I'd have more luck in France - and what do you know, there's a Sainte Rachel. Sadly, the fête day is only a few days after my birthday, so I doubt I'm going to get a whole extra celebration out of this one.
Does anyone know of any other countries which have similar customs?
