Magyar Marketing Newsletter #92
Isten Hozott! Welcome!
In the coming months we will be writing several articles about our time in Hungary so stay tuned! We had a wonderful time filled with many special opportunities as well as funny situations. Considering we are not proficient in Hungarian at all, I am surprised we survived but it was only because of patient family members and friends and strangers who assisted us along our journey. We ate some amazing food, were able to get ahold of some important family documents, learn about a variety of Christian ministries, and connect with precious family and friends! We know every moment we spend in Hungary is a privilege.
Easter Orders are due by this Sunday, April 13, 2014!
Easter Orders for hand decorated Hungarian Easter Eggs, Walnut and Poppyseed Beigli/Kalacs/Rolls as well as limited amounts of pogacsa (bacon cracking biscuits) and walnut and poppyseed pozsonyi kifli need to be in this week! You can check our website or please call us at 1-800-786-7851 to place your order over the phone.
Free Hungarian Easter Card Printables
Just a reminder that we have free Easter Card printables with Hungarian themes to print, color and share with those you love! You can even use these Hungarian themes to inspire you to create other Hungarian folk art projects! Check them out!
Stork Webcam in Hungary
The storks (gólya) are nesting in Hungary! Some small villages seem to be stork magnets while others only have one or two nests. If you are interested in seeing a live webcam of a stork nest in Hungary click on the Gólya Webcam . Just be sure to factor in the time change. If you ever struggle with insomnia in the “Americas” and you need a little something to pass the time you can watch the webcam as it will most likely be daytime in Hungary.
Update on Hungarian Museum in Passaic NJ
While we were in Hungary I received information that the Hungarian Museum in Passaic, New Jersey is in need of a new home and the wonderful treasures of its exhibits are tucked away in storage. Click here to read more about this unfortunate development. We had planned to see the museum this year now that we live much closer than ever before and we are very disappointed! This year we have heard about two Hungarian restaurants closing (one in Colorado and one in Connecticut) and this museum in NJ. Don’t wait a moment longer to visit a Hungarian festival, butcher, restaurant, bakery, church, event or club…you never know when you will lose your chance!
Coffehouse Culture in Budapest
Coffeehouses have long been a part of the culture of Budapest and here is an article on Coffehouse Culture in Budapest with historical information you will find interesting. One of my reasons for going to Hungary involves a special Christian coffeehouse ministry I became acquainted with last year. It was very exciting to see their location, their efforts and meet several of the people working together to provide a place of encouragement and fellowship and connection through art and coffee. Click on Montázs Art Café to learn about the project. Soon the coffeehouse will be up and running so if you have an occasion to visit Budapest, you can check it out for yourself!
If you know someone who would benefit from what we do at Magyar Marketing, please share our information with them! We would be delighted to send them our catalog!
