Ch4: In The Name

I bet you didn't expect Ch4 that soon. Well, let me tell you one thing: Even if you've expected it it won't be what you've expected.

I guess I already got some of you confused - bare me a little longer... about 5 to 10 minutes.

To start with I'd say that this one is a bit different from the last 3. It's concentrated not on the feeling and happening of myself, but on myself. In my name in particular.

Today, 24th June, is Еньов Ден [ Enyov Den ] or in English - one of Bulgaria's most ancient holidays dating back to 500AC, when the Slavs were a great people on our lands. So back to today - today is also a personal holiday for everyone bearing the name of Yana, Yanko, Yanis, Yoana, Yosif etc., all names which have devived by the name Ivan ( also Yohan and Jason ).

So today I celebrate that I'm named Yana. Some will find it stupid or something, but considering how much does the name do for a personality there should be the Names' days. I can't imagine having any other name but Yana, simply because it resembles me the best. It, in Bulgarian, means 'Crazy River', also 'Gracious'. And that's how my name makes me gracious in kicking butts while swearing the other guy and normally crazy pervert.

Usually this day is connected with witchcraft and herbs. Also few centuries ago on 24 June the maidens, who want to get engaged in the following year used to put a named flower in a bucket and then a small girl had to handle, randomly, the flowers to the young women. Some may ask themselves 'How do you name a flower",well, the virgins have chosen a flower that symbolized the man they would like to get together with. It's been a nice and colourful day.

According to the people's sayings, today all Evil sleeps... I'd say it only takes a nap. Anyhow...

Since my grandmother was Yana too, I used to go with her in the valley and gather herbs. It may sounds funny, but I still do it. I get up before sunrise ( so about 3 am ) and go to the dunes to pick up some sand grass or aloe. Why do i do it every year - I don't know.

It's noon already and in 2 hours I'm going to work, but to work. Yesterday my boss said "I got you balloons". See, she's being bringing them since my birth day, then my prom... so more than a month. Yet I know that there are at least 3 bottles of Jonny Red label, maybe even ofe Black label, in the cupboeard in the office.

What can i tell you... We are one happy office - drinking during work time, and of course, my boss drinks the most. Well, I can drink more, but prefer to be professional at work.

If anyone passes by Sunny Beach, Nessebar, Bourgas, Varna, Sozopol, or any other place in Bulgaria, and is up for a drink - give me a call.
