Diários de Filosofia

Diários de Filosofia is a bilingual blog partly run by the Hungarian István Bagó who is the co-author of the blog.

We feature a post with a little qutation, that is about the Mikulás:

"Today we celebrate the name Nicholas (Miklós). It’s when according to tradition Santa Claus, or “Mikulás” as we call him, appears for the first time. The name comes from a bishop called Saint Nicholas who was a very generous person – he always helped people, especially children. Saint Nicholas started being referred to as Santa Claus after the Protestant Reformation." (to read the entire post click here)

  1. Zsolt, that's really kind of you, thanks. =) Being Brazilian and having a Hungarian man as a blog partner is something that happened in a crazy way - If it wasn't for István I would never have started blogging. He's the kindest Hungarian person I've ever met (I know very few Hungarian people, but we often discuss how different from Brazilian people Hungarians are. =))))

    István speaks Portuguese very well, too. I would LOVE to learn Hungarian, but as I see the language, one must BE Hungarian to speak it - It's SO hard to learn, and believe me, I've tried.

    Sorry for such long comment. Just wanted to say thanks, take care and keep smiling. =*
