My lecture is on the interpretations of the Hungarian national feasts modified by different eras. My examination is based on three main questions: 1. how are the nationalist ideologies and the efforts of the authority to expropriation present in these interpretations; 2. how do they differ from the mythical-popular perception; 3. how does the Hungarian culture of feast connect to the European traditions of the nation states that are able to express unified national identity. The European national feasts can be grouped by four basic categories (according to the applied historical tradition): independence, statehood, dynastic and cultural events. From this point of view we can find significant differences between the West-European grand nation states’ nationalism and the –mostly East-Central-European and Baltic- small countries’ chosen tradition in which their independence and separateness are expressed. The question rises: is it possible to come into existence a kind of a European identity in the common feasts of European Union? Contrarily we can observe that instead of the official feast day 9th of May the originally religious events of the common Christian culture and a social “strata-feast” 1st of May (the worker’s international day of solidarity) get real importance in our European consciousness.
