Magyar Marketing Newsletter #128

April 2017


Isten Hozott!

We have a full newsletter this month with a lot of great resources but first a quick reminder:

Easter is Sunday, April 16th this year and all Easter orders need to be in by this Wednesday, April 5th to guarantee we can get your items to you! Please call me at 1-800-786-7851 if the website is giving you problems and leave a message (if you get the answering machine) and I will call you back. We have a lot of great Hungarian themed gifts that are perfect for Easter baskets for all ages. Check out our folk art eggs from Hungary!

We have some great sales going on so stock up because we will be closed for a few months while we move the business and then are out “on tour” to Transylvania and Western Hungary. All other orders need to be in by April 15th so we can pack things up for the move!  We do have some spaces available in our 2017 tours and we are finalizing the 2018 schedule so send an email to with Tours in the subject line if you are thinking about traveling with us someday. We would love to have you join us!

The Hungarian National Anthem

My humble apologies! I created and posted a cheat sheet on the Magyar Marketing Facebook page for the Hungarian National Anthem the other day. I created it so that I could have it on my phone to review (and sing along with) when I am at a Hungarian event and thought I would share it with others. Alas, I had some errors in it but things have been corrected. I apologize for leading anyone astray with my earlier posting. My Hungarian language journey involves practice, focus, trial, and error. If you ever catch a mistake, please let me know as soon as possible. I aim to be approachable and teachable! Here is the link to the corrected information!

Hungarian Cooking Day

Recently, I got together with my cousin for a little Hungarian cooking extravaganza. Her dad and my mom were first cousins and they were great friends. But those two have passed away and it is our opportunity to be cousins and friends! Since I moved to New York in 2013, we have been intentional about getting together as often as schedules have allowed. A few months ago we decided to get together at my home in Tuckahoe so we could do a little cooking. Yesterday was the day! Read More….

Our Recent Travels

We had an opportunity to visit quite a variety of Hungarian venues on a recent trip. We stopped in Dallas and shared a meal and great conversation with some new friends at Armoury D.E.  We also had a delightful lunch and visit with more new friends near Phoenix. We had a fun day at the Hungarian Festival at the Hungarian Reformed Church in Phoenix  and met a lot of our current customers as well as connected with some new ones. It was great to have so many friendly faces stop by. I was so surprised when I finally met Terie, who delivered this sweet Hungarian folk art decorated cake to me! One of the reasons I enjoy continuing what my mom started with Magyar Marketing is that I don’t view this endeavor as working with customers but sharing this common love for Hungarian heritage with friends from all around the world! It truly is fun! We were also able to participate in an event with the New Mexico Hungarians in Albuquerque. Everywhere we go there are people working hard to share their love for Hungarian history and culture. It is always so encouraging to see this shared passion all around the U.S.A.! I know it happens in many other countries as well. I love to see the Magyar influence spread around, particularly with foods and folk art because those are natural places for people to become engaged with Hungarian culture!

Free Hungarian Folk Art PDFs

Speaking of Hungarian folk art, we have new coloring pages for Easter! This is a FREE resource! If you send an email to with Easter PDFs in the subject line I will send you all of the pages we have gathered over the last few years including the new ones from this year. Print them out to color or for inspiration for other folk art projects. Nikolett Corley has contributed to this project again this year. Born and raised in Hungary, she is a self-taught artist and a top selling author of numerous coloring books. She lives in New York, is talented in so many ways, and is delightful! Thank you, for sharing your gifts, Nikolett!
