Valentine’s Day never really found its way into the Hungarian culture, nor did Halloween. I’m sure there are a lot of people celebrating them, mostly teenagers or young adults, but it never became truely ours. Today I tried to find some signs on the streets to prove the world that we know and celebrate Valentine’s Day, but I didn’t succeed. I even visited our most tourist-beladen street, Váci utca to look for some big red heart-shaped balloons or something adequate for this day, but the only big red heart I found was a decoration in the shopwindow of Intimissimi. And I clearly should draw the line somewhere, so I won’t start posting pictures of lower bodies made of plastic and wearing sexy thongs, even if it’s the only way to prove the presence of Valentine’s Day in the Hungarian culture; so instead of big red heart-shaped balloons I offer you a photo of our Liberty-bridge (called Szabadság-híd) by night. Take it as the declaration of my love for my city.
