well no, but it's not a good idea to call Polish people brainless just cos they don't celebrate their imieniny.
But Poles traditionally do celebrate imieniny. Not all for sure. But then, not all Poles celebrate Christmas either.
knowing the history is very very good, but just cos you know what it was like so many years ago doesn't mean it's still like that right now.
Sure thing. Except that in the case of names day they still celebrate it.
michal is a brilliant example of such a narrow mind.
Speaking of Michal, just a couple of weeks ago they celebrated Michal's imieniny in Poland. I wouldn;t have known if I didn't readPOLISH media. Check the schedule for 2pm in that article.
In fact, today (Oct 15th) the prez. was late at the airport (2.11pm) because Jadwiga Kaczyńska celebrated her name day:
Prime Minister of Poland, Donald Tusk, said after the first day of the EU summit that the announcement of President Lech Kaczynski on common shares in the subsequent summit meetings is dangerous from the point of view of the Polish . - Announcing the President is dangerous from the point of view of the Polish - Tusk told reporters. He added that if you fail to settle the question of competence , then , " a last resort" you will need to change the constitution .
In other words, your memory of Poland is so fresh and yet so false :)
