Easter is the greatest Christian celebration, which means that it is a pretty big thing in Hungary. It is a family and religious holiday at the same time with many international traditions and symbols like painted eggs and chocolate bunnies. On top of that we also have our own customs, so let’s see how Hungarians celebrate “Húsvét”.
In difficult times, culture has always been an escape and a promoter of peace and democracy. The role of culture is invaluable during difficult times when we as a society are tackling various issues from safety and security to climate crisis. It may sound naive but I sincerely believe that culture and the arts have the ability to inspire and influence the way people think and act.
