Celebrating in a different way

Ukrainians do not generally celebrate their birthdays. Instead they celebrate:
a.  Name Day:  The feast day of the saint for whom the individual is named.
b.  Town Day:  The founding date of the town where the individual was born.
c.  Ancestor Day:  A new baby is given the ‘birthday’ of a recently deceased ancestor.
d.  Family Day:  The wedding anniversary of the individual’s parents.
