The Calendar in Slovak life is a constant reminder of both time and place for Slovaks. Each day of the
week in a year is special because Slovaks assign name days
to honour each persons' name. As such the calendars are used throughout the year to know when each persons name is celebrated, and the historical significance of a specific day to the Slovak people In addition, the Calendar was also a physical book that came in the form shown here, and it acted as a yearbook, a daytimer, an almanac, and a source for spiritual and individual inspiration.
