I might have mentioned this before, but I'll say it again: Romanians are so crazy about celebrations that they also celebrate name days. So if you have a saint's name, on the day you celebrate that saint, you also celebrate your name. More presents, more fun!
May 21st is the day when to saints are celebrated: Constantine and his mother Hellen (Elena). As my middle name is Elena, well, celebration on the way. I thought of going and buying some sweets for work, but it's too crazy around here. New version to be released at 6 pm etc. So I will postpone it.
Anyway, I had completely forgotten about this. But D remembered yesterday. So he got me some really nice stuff. A new bathing suit (yeah, I have a problem, I admit, I always want more and more) and two Orhan Pamuk books. The best present on this name's day! So thanks again, D! :)
