Hungary is a country in Central Europe. Throughout Hungary’s history it has faced many wars and takeovers by many different empires, giving it a long history of struggle and conflict. The positive side of the constantly changing hands is that modern Hungary has taken cultural elements from many different places. It is a melting pot of traditions and customs. Christianity is the most popularly practiced religion, though people are becoming less and less religious. Despite the population moving away from the church, Christianity has been a part of the Hungarian culture for many years, so the customs of Christianity, such as the holidays, are still practiced widely.
