Today is Slava for all you Sveti Nikola fans out there. To the Americans he could be considered Saint Nick, makes sense a little bit huh? My birthday being towards the end of December this day is also my Slava. To be married in the Orthodox church, and for my wife, I converted. So it seemed only natural that this would be the day.
Last year I got yelled at by some knucklehead in the comments that said it was an insult, that I picked my own Slava. I don’t see it that way. It’s based on your birthday right? I’m a member of the church right? So there it is. After work today I’m heading to the in-laws to eat and drink until the wife has to drive me home. We don’t host anything at our house yet but that time is coming, the way I see it; why mess with a good thing? I don’t have to do much of anything.
So Srecna Slava to Ciko Vukasin, Ciko Milorad, and my father-in-law Milovan! If i forgot someone, my apologies.
