Happy Name Day, Violet!

Today's my daughter's name day. In the Czech Republic, every day of the year is associated with a name. Citizens get to celebrate name days along with birthdays; it's customary to give someone a small gift on his or her name day.

Today's name is the Czech equivalent of Violet: Viola, Violka, Fialka, etc. If you know anyone named Violet or some variant thereof, give her a treat today and honor her by wearing your favorite violet perfume.

May 25 2006 also happens to be Fialka's first birthday, if you hold to the idea that life begins at conception. I myself do, though I still believe (more strongly than ever, in fact) in women's right to safe elective termination, a.k.a. abortion.

But enough about that. Off to spritz on some Caron Aimez-Moi.

Happy Violet Day!

Aimez-Moi contains notes of bergamot, anise, mint, cardamom, violet, magnolia, jasmine, rose, orris, heliotrope, tolu, and vanilla.

Spritz a bit more on for me, okay?

R -- thank you! Always great to hear your "voice." You know Marina has a name day too? Look it up at the link!

M -- I wish you'd allow posts on your blog (though I understand why you don't allow it). I've wanted to post SO MANY times in the past few weeks, or at least email you, but I don't have your email address... :-(

Thanks for responding to my post and letting me know about Marina's name day, K.

It's October 10th, the best month of the year if I must say so myself!

But let's keep that to ourselves. I don't want her giving me yet another reason to give her money. Yuck, yuck! Ay--teenagers! :):)
