Szervusz from HUNGARYEmail from the partner in Hungary
I live in Szarvas, a small town in the south west of Hungary on the River Körös. Szarvas is not far at all from Budapest (about 170 kms).
My school is a Lutheran school and has eight grades. Now we have our winter holidays, and we go back to school only on 5 January.

Email from pupils about Revolution Day (1848)
In 1848 there was a revolution in Hungary against the Habsburgs (Austrian kings). On 15 March we don't go to school. We wear nice clothes and go to special places and listen to programmes of children singing songs and reciting poems. In the evening we go to the river and take some torches and walk together in the dark. This holiday means the independence of Hungary.
Our next holiday will be Easter in April. Soon we write about it. It is warm in Hungary. It is 25°C and sunny. We are sending some photographs we took this week.

Here, in Hungary lots of people love meat soup with matza balls. What is your favourite food? ... soon we will have the Easter vacation, but usually I work a lot because there are lots of work in the garden now, in spring.
