My Recollection of Easter Traditions
My Recollection of Easter Traditions

Here is a personal remembrance of what it was like to experience a Hungarian Easter.  Judy’s father probably recited something like this: 

"Szép virág a piros pipacs, szép a gyöngyvirág is,

 szép virág a rezeda, szép a tulipán is.

                                         Ám a legszebb virág, az itt áll előttem.

                                         Soha nem fog elhervadni, ha én megöntöztem."
