National Holidays

There will be some days when you don’t have to go to school and others when you do but you might find others in “holiday mode”. The reason behind this is that they are celebrating Hungarian holidays.

Here is a list of the public holidays:

1st January – New Year’s Day
15th March – Anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution’s outbreak of 1848
Easter – Usually in March or April from Good Friday through Easter Monday.
Pentecost Monday – 50 days after Easter. Usually in May or June.
1st May – Labour Day
20th August – Saint Stephen’s Day (founder of the Hungarian state)
23rd October – National Day in memory of the 1956 revolution
1st November – All Saints’ Day
25-26th December – 1st and 2nd day of Christmas

...and a few more that most Hungarians celebrate:

1st Sunday in May – Mother’s Day
6th December – Saint Nicholas Day
24th December – Christmas Eve
31st December – New Year's Eve
