Hungary Today Wishes You a Merry Christmas!

Hungary Today 2020.12.24.

Today, billions around the world celebrate and commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior of mankind. The Editorial Team of Hungary Today is wishing a Merry Christmas to those who observe the holiday, and a lovely, tranquil break to those who do not. Although this year the holidays are shadowed by the coronavirus epidemic, we do hope that Christmas brings joy, health to you and your loved ones, as well as peace and silence in this dreadful, stressful, chaotic year.  

In many religions and according to various beliefs, the holiday season is a time of celebration. In most years, people travel home at this time to be with their families, are visiting friends, or plan to embark on a lovely trip. However, this year, due to the coronavirus epidemic, these plans may not have worked out. Please, pay attention to others and your loved ones during the holiday season as well, adhere to the precautions and restrictions, so that we can celebrate next Christmas once again with the whole family and friends.

In addition, this year’s silence may give time for everyone to pay closer attention to themselves, turn inward, enjoy the season and find the joy and miracle of Christmas in themselves. Although the weeks leading up to the holidays can be a bit stressful and chaotic, the holiday season should be about slowing down and taking time to enjoy life’s simpler pleasures – and if possible, with loved ones.

Before the curfew, there is still time to enjoy Budapest in its most festive form by wandering down the beautifully lit streets. If you stay at home due to the coronavirus, try to prepare one of our amazing, traditional, Hungarian Christmas recipes and do not forget to send us a picture of it in the comments, or on Instagram!

In the name of the whole Editorial Team of Hungary Today, we wish you a very Happy Holiday season and thank you for continuing to be regular readers of our news site and our sister site, Ungarn Heute, and are grateful for all your support, comments, and likes on our social media sites.
