About Seasons And Holiday


SEASONS

The word for season is évszak, the plural is évszakok.

Évszakok: tél (winter), tavasz (spring), nyár (summer), ősz (autumn, fall). They want -val, -vel or -en, -on badly!

télen – in winter
nyáron – in summer
tavasszal – in spring
ősszel – in autumn

telente/minden télen – every winter
nyaranta/minden nyáron – every summer
minden tavasszal – every spring
minden ősszel – every autumn

HOLIDAY, FEAST

Hungarian uses the word: ünnep and the plural is ünnepek.

karácsonykor – at Christmas
húsvétkor – at Easter
Anyák napján – on Mother’s Day
születésnapon – on birthday
a születésnapomon – on my birthday
névnapomon – on my name-day

Note that Hungarian does not write these words with capital letters. Perhaps it’s more polite to write ”Anyák napja” like that, but not mandatory.

And the verb formed from ünnep is: (meg)ünnepel = to celebrate

-Mit ünneplünk? –A születésnapomat ünnepeljük.
-What are we celebrating? –We’re celebrating my birthday.

Megünnepeltem, hogy leérettségiztem.
I celebrated my graduation from high-school.
