A day before March 15th

Great weather!

Hösök tér
'On March 15 1848,
Hungary's rebellion against the Habsburgs began with poet's oration.
The events that followed were more like a Greek tragedy,
and about a year later,
the poet Sándor Petöfi, lay dying on the battlefield.
But the revolution of 1848 remains a source of Magyar pride.
Every year on March 15,
a day known simply as the National Holiday,
the country celebrates, people wear tricolour ribbons, called kokards,
to show patriotic solidarity,
and politicians make speeches."
