In Greece, name days are celebrated instead of birthdays, where a name day is the Feast Day of a Greek Orthodox Saint. Children are typically named after the Patron Saint of their region with the eldest son often being named after his paternal grandfather and the oldest daughter after her paternal grandmother. Children sharing paternal grandparents often have the same first name. Traditionally, the person whose name day it is treats their friend food or drinks at the local café.
