Farsang is a festive period between Vízkereszt (Epiphany) and Hamvazószerda (Ash Wednesday). Farsang is the time of fun and feast, traditionally aimed at chasing winter away and invite spring with laughter and joy. Hungarians eat a lot of doughnuts and have fancy dress parties
On the day of Farsang, Primary students can dress up as anything they want to. Traditionally Farsang is about being creative and making your own surprising and funny costume. It is not just story characters you can think about: you can be a tooth paste, a túró rudi or an umbrella, if you want! You can even pair up with a friend to create a co-operative costume with two people inside!
Please note that due to current COVID measures, parents will be required to wear masks at all times and show proof of vaccination upon arrival.
