Expired event.


Christmas Eve is celebrated amongst family and friends on 24 December. Baby Jesus brings the presents on this day at night. Usually huge feasts are held during this time, with meals like: fish soup, stuffed cabbage and “bejgli” (poppyseed or walnut cake), but the traditions may differ in each family. On the Christmas tree Hungarians put special treats called: “szaloncukor”. Members of the Christian church pay a visit to their local church for a Midnight Mass.

Public holiday, most shops are closed and services do not operate.
