The Making of the 2015 Hungarian-American Calendar


Are you a Hungarian or Hungarian descent living in the US? If so, you probably have colored post it notes about important events both for the Hungarian as well as for the American holidays.

The Hungarian American Calendar concept was born from the need of Hungarians having all relevant information in one place. Being Hungarian, or Hungarian descent, name days probably play an important role in your day-to-day life. Additionally, if you are living in the United States all major holidays observed have a great influence in how you are planning vacations, family trips, and other great times. On top of all this there are many great festivals throughout the US, that celebrate Hungarian culture, traditions, and heritage. Without being complete the Hungarian-American Calendar in its first edition has these important dates all in one place. One very specific detail of the Hungarian calendars is that the week starts with Monday, or Hétfő in Hungarian, which is hét+fő means the head of the week, (head of seven), and there is a great saying that goes: “Hétfőn még a fű se nő.”

We are very grateful to the US-based Hungarian owned businesses and organizations who sponsored the first edition of the Hungarian-American Calendar. Here we are listing them with links in alphabetical order for easy access below.
