Delivering a Merrier Xmas to Those in Need in Hungary: MikulásGyár
MikulásGyár is open between 9 and 21 December in 2021 for the sixth time at two locations in Budapest to collect donations in order to offer a Merrier Xmas for 200.000 children. Helping needy families and children is the plan of this humanitarian event.

The locations: 
Budapesti 56-osok tere 09.00 -  21.00, 
Pólus Center 10.00 - 19.00  

Mikulásgyár makes no distinction between people, and they do not ask why anyone is hungry. If you can, please help, in the spirit of  Mikulásgyár: humanity and solidarity.

The Mikulásgyár mainly expects non-perishable food, cleaning products and toiletries, and sweets as donations. It is important to emphasize that those in need are in need of non-perishable food, so if you have the opportunity, bring as much canned food, pasta, flour, sugar, rice, fries, apples, oil, drinking water, sweets as possible.

With the help of Magyar Posta, this year, once again, those living in the smallest settlements will have the opportunity to help those in need with donations as the holidays approach. 

Supporters can place their donations in a closed box at most post offices between December 1st and December 21st.

Donations are accepted free of charge at most post offices nationwide, and on the sealed boxes you only need to  write  (in capital letters) Mikulásgyár.

    All Saints' Day In Hungary Celebrated On 1 November

    • 29 Oct 2021 12:07 PM

    On this National Holiday, also known locally as 'the day of the dead' (Halottak Napja), all main shops and public offices are closed. Traditionally, instead of celebrating 'Halloween', Hungarians head to the cemeteries for All Soul's Day - also known as All Hallows Tide, All-Hallomas, or All Hallows' Day.
