St. Stephen’s Day is one of the most important national holidays in Hungary. King St. Stephen, who was canonized on August 20, 1083 by Pope Gregory VII, was the first monarch of Hungary. This day became an annual celebration in 1771 with the help of Maria Theresa, who designated it as a national state and church holiday. Since then, Hungarians celebrate on August 20th with day-long festivities, creative programs, and fireworks.
