November 1st is a holiday in Hungary, All Saints Day. It is interesting because in the States the only holiday around this time of year that I was familiar with was Halloween. That is not celebrated over here. However, Reformation Day, which is also October 31st is celebrated in Europe (where there is a larger Reformed population) in addition to All Saints Day which is celebrated in the Catholic countries of Europe. Since Hungary is a Catholic country and has a small percentage of members of the Reformed Church, All Saints Day is celebrated here rather than Reformation Day.
The CCC office and school have Nov.1st off (since it is a major holiday where places are closed). Gary had a meeting at the office in the afternoon anyway, but we decided to go hiking beforehand in the hills near his office. We enjoyed it because usually all of our Saturdays are filled with doing house and yard work. It was a beautiful day for hiking too!Ethan had lots of fun with this rock, mostly just picking it up and throwing it down over and over again. I know that these 2 pictures are similar, but I liked his smile in the one above where he was having fun with the rock, and I like how he is looking straight at the camera and reaching out in the picture below.
