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.
There is still time to enjoy Budapest in its most festive form by wandering down Andrássy Avenue, Váci Street and the Grand Boulevard, all beautifully lit, or by paying a visit to the bustling Christmas Fair on Vörösmarty Square. And, of course, don’t forget to travel on Budapest’s magnificent Christmas trams, operating until 6 January.
The Advent Feast at the Basilica is also waiting for everyone, who would like to get into the holiday spirit before the evening celebrations. The Advent Feast recently came in first place in a poll conducted by the European Best Destinations, measuring readers’ favorite European Christmas markets, preceding the most beautiful European markets, such as the famous Christkindlmarkt in Vienna or the Brussels Christmas market.
In many religions and according to various beliefs, the holiday season is a time of celebration. Whether you traveled home to be with your families, are visiting friends or plan to embark on a lovely trip, please make time for yourselves and enjoy the season. 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 with loved ones.
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.
