The Slava, also called Krsna Slava and Krsno ime, is a Serbian Orthodox Church tradition of the ritual glorification of one's family's patron saint among Serbs and Montenegrins, and also Serbs in Macedonia. The family celebrates the Slava annually on the saint's feast day. Unlike other major Orthodox Christian nations, i.e. Greeks, Russians, Romanians, Bulgarians, Georgians etc., Serbs do not celebrate individual name days, as when a person named after a saint would celebrate that saint's feast day, but instead they do it collectively as the name day of a certain family and/or clan.
