Namesdays and our Annual Photinia Hedge Photo

Our daughter’s saint is Marty Photini (the Samaritan woman, the first evangelist, and equal to the Apostles). On our calendar (OCA) her feast day is today (March 20), though I know it varies. There’s this plant called Photinia that blushes the bright red of the martyrs right around her feast day and I like to take a picture of our daughter in front of it every year to document, even if it means pulling over at a random hedge we spot when we are out of town. 


Many years to all the Photinis out there! What ways do you celebrate names days in your family?
