I’m Hungarian and as an English teacher, translator and interpreter, I’ve been working with people worldwide. Through the years, I’ve heard interesting, funny and sometimes offensive stereotypes about my country and people. How does the world view Hungary and Hungarians? Keep on reading to find out.
Fish heads? Devils? Corporal punishment? Tons of poppy seeds? These are all essential elements of the Hungarian Christmas season. Do you want to know how Hungarians spend Christmas? Look no further, this post is for you.
