The 13th of November

The 13th of November was declared as the day of the Hungarian language in 2011 by the parliament, thus putting it into the focus of public attention once a year. Our language is part of our cultural heritage and is the base of the national identity. According to the resolution: “The parliament, realizing that the togetherness of the Hungarian nation is best expressed by the main intellectual cultural heritage, the Hungarian language – respecting our homeland’s traditional linguistic diversity, at the same time taking responsibility for the linguistic usage rights of minorities -, to express appreciation towards the Hungarian language that serves the nation’s development and the keeping of its traditions, the law making the Hungarian language official, declares the day of the acceptance of the 1844 II preamble about the Hungarian language and nation, 13th of November, as the day of the Hungarian language.”
