It's Monday Again

Last week I wrote two poems.
On August 20, we celebrated Saint Stephen, our first king and the founder of the state. (Fireworks, speeches, etc.) And just before that, on August 18, I celebrated my nameday.

Namedays explained
A nameday is like a birthday, only a bit less significant. But you still get presents and people wish you 'Happy Nameday'. So it's a bit like having two birthdays a year. August 18 is Ilona's Day, all Ilonas celebrate on this day. Each name is related to a certain day of the year, and you can also see the names in the calendar. (In Hungary.)
