Easter is a two-day holiday in Hungary, celebrated with great fanfare and religious fervor. The holidays are enjoyed to the fullest by the Hungarians.
People celebrate the occasion by following customs that are native to their homeland.
A number of interesting folk customs are still alive in the European country, which make the festivities colorful. Out of the customs, sprinkling perfumed water and egg-painting are very popular and are followed even today.
Sprinkling, the very popular custom of Easter in Hungary, is observed on Easter Monday, which is also known as 'Ducking Monday'. On the day, boys playfully sprinkle perfume or perfumed water on girls.
Until some time back, young men used to pour buckets of water over young women's heads. In the present time, they spray perfume, cologne or just plain water, and then ask for a kiss and a red egg.
This tradition of Easter in Hungary is followed since a long time.
