Our first and second graders are currently learning about traditions celebrated in our community.
This week we had a special guest, Mr Eger to come and share about the Hungarian culture. We learned that many animals in Hungary are hairy, such as the famous Hungarian shepherd dog, Puli!
Some of the unique festivals Hungarian people celebrate is Easter Monday. The boys are allowed to sprinkle girls with water or perfume – traditionally, a bucket of water is thrown on them! – and then the girls offer them painted eggs and homemade treats!
Did you also know that Santa comes on December 6 in Hungary! 6 of December is Miklós name day, this is the day of St Nicholas, and the day of the Santa Claus!
There was so much more we learned about this wonderful culture.
Thank you Mr Eger for taking the time to organize a fun and fruitful
presentation! We can’t wait to have you back again !
