SLAVA - The slava, also called krsna slava and krsno ime ( literally 'christened name' in Serbian), is the Orthodox Christian tradition of the ritual celebration, veneration and observance of a family's own patron saint. The family celebrates the slava annually on the patron saint's feast day. The slava is primarily associated with the Serbs; they regard it as one of their most significant holidays.
