Christmas eve was mainly for the near spouse and children. Up coming working day the broader loved ones loved a lunch together. And on the third working day mates, neighbours. We have been so full of food stuff! Items ended up opened on Xmas Eve – so all the kids and grownups have been dressed festively when they opened their gifts…
I nonetheless make marzipan “Szaloncukor” – which is a Hungarian Christmas candy hanged on the tree. It is like a little Xmas cracker, but we hung them on the tree. (We utilised to steal the sweets within , then cautiously wrap the deal with yet again, unnoticed by our Mom…)
