Magyar Marketing Newsletter #143

Welcome! Isten Hozott!

May 2018

Somehow, we have skipped right from spring to summer in southern Indiana. I am glad I was able to travel to Arizona and Florida this year to get an early dose of sunshine as I waited through this unusually long winter. I do love every season but I am particularly ready for long warm days and sunshine.

This week we drove to my cousin’s 80th birthday bash in south central Pennsylvania. I am always up for a good road trip and it was such a lovely drive through Kentucky and West Virginia. The lilacs and azaleas at the party house were in full bloom and beautiful! It is always fun to visit with extended family and enjoy some good stories, delicious food, and time together. Summertime is a great time for family get-togethers and opportunities to make memories. Hungarian heritage isn’t required to enjoy a good old-fashioned bacon fry but it can be a wonderful tradition to share with friends and family! In Hungarian, a bacon fry is called a szalonnasütés  /suh’-lah-nah-shoot-aysh/ Click here for ideas on how to host a bacon fry!


Summertime is festival time! The next Hungarian festival we will be attending is in New Brunswick NJ on June 2nd. Come enjoy some fantastic food and cultural programming. Click on their website for directions and performance details. If you get to attend, be sure to stop in and say hello to us at the Magyar Marketing booth!

If you know or love a mathematician they will be fascinated to learn that “Bolyai laid the foundation of non-Euclidean geometry … and, without it, Einstein would not have revolutionized our understanding of the universe with his notion of spacetime, the curvature of which is a supreme embodiment of non-Euclidean geometry.” And, if you happen to love all things Hungarian, you will be interested in it as well!

Transylvania is in the middle of Romania and has beautiful high-roofed wooden churches, exceptional architecture, lovely folk art, medieval towns, mysterious castles and a troubled history. Ancient forests, sweet villages, and wonderful folklore create a truly magical atmosphere. Transylvania is probably one of the most natural, unspoiled regions left in Europe. This region is rich in mountainous scenery, untouched nature, fairytale castles, turrets and churches; this area is breathtaking with its forested peaks, sweet waved valleys and sparkling streams of the Salt Land.
