My Hungarian expression posting day.
Because this is the 13th Hungarian expression!

Boldog Névnapot!/Bowl-dog nave-nap-ot/Happy Name day!
Hungarians celebrate Name days too. Every name is written in our yearly calendar so we can keep track and greet people on their day. We give gifts (perhaps smaller ones, like knickknacks than on a Birthday) and get a cake too. My Name day was on this Saturday, May 27th. Thanks to all my family for the greetings!
Boldog szülinapot!/Bowl-dog sue-lee-nap-ot/Happy Birthday!
I thought today is the right time to share some of the Hungarian Easter customs we have. Our Easter celebrations are a little bit different in some aspects.
Boldog Húsvétot!/Ball-dog Hosh-vate-oht! /Happy Easter!
Just in case you need it… let’s hope not!
Merre van a mosdó?/mare-e-vun-u-mosh-dough/Where can I find the toilet?
