Religious and national holidays Hungary
In Hungary, there are lots of traditions related to holidays. Obviously, they are not really served in big cities but in little villages, they are preserved even nowadays. Besides the three big national holidays, even religious holidays are celebrated with several interesting and sometimes spectacular traditions.
Hungarian national holidays are the followings: the holiday of the revolution and fight for freedom in 1848 (on the 15th March), the day of King Stephen I who founded the Hungarian state (20th August), and the holiday of the revolution and fight for freedom in 1956 (23rd October).
If we study religious holidays, Christmas and Easter have the most traditions. At Eastern, Christians celebrate Jesus Christ’s resurrection; this is the biggest Christian religious holiday. In contrast Christmas, Eastern hasn’t got a fixed date. It is celebrated on the first Sunday and Monday which follows the first full moon after the spring equinox.
