Hungarian Themed Christmas Decorations
with Zsuzsa Serer
A talk and demonstration all about Christmas decorations Hungarian style.
Note the start time – we are trying an afternoon talk for the first time.
'Christmas Decorations with a Hungarian Theme' by Zsuzsa Serer
Thursday 15th November at 3:15pm - Note the afternoon start time
On 6th December Hungarians celebrate the day of St. Mikulás their version of Santa Claus. On the night before, children leave their polished boots at the window in the hope they will be filled with treats and small gifts. But it is not until 24th, Holy Night, that Hungarians traditionally decorate their Christmas trees. Zsuzsa will tell us more.
