Most Hungarians follow the baby Jesus tradition, and many go to midnight mass on the 24th.
Christmas Eve Menu in Hungary:
- Carp fried in breadcrumbs with French salad
- Beigli: traditional cake, a paste roll filled with a cooked cream made of nuts or poppy-seed, with sugar, honey, jam, cinnamon, clove, raisins.
Also fish soup, stuffed cabbage, and honey cake often figure in Christmas menu - to know why fish is served rather than turkey or other poultry just watch the video above.
