We React To The Best Hungarian Christmas Songs!

Hungarian Christmas songs reaction

It's the most wonderful time of the year! The only time of year when the best type of music - Christmas songs - are allowed to be played - yey! With the help of super Magyar Weasel fan Sandra, we've put together the list of best Hungarian Christmas songs - let us know in the comments below if we've missed off any of your favourites!

1. TNT: Fehér Karácsony

We were surprised that this song was neither old and traditional but also not modern and cheesy. The speed was great for us, we could hear the worlds and understand quite a few of them :) A great song for people learning Hungarian. We liked this song! - 7/10

2. Kis karácsony, Nagy Karácsony (traditional)

Again a great speed and with words that we could understand. I love angelic children noises at Christmas so I like this one, even though the backing noise is a bit annoying and simple. - 6/10

3. Száncsengő (Jingle Bells)

We have this same song in English - Jingle Bells. So it was nice to hear a backing track we knew well - I never know if it's better to learn a Hungarian song with a backing track I know or not though. On the one hand the song can get instantly in your head, on the other hand the song is in English in your head still. Anyway, we loved the fun upbeaty-ness of this song and especially loved the chingy ringy line - but I have no idea what they were saying there or how to write that, or actually what they are saying for any of it. So although we love this song, it's definitely too hard for us to sing - hopefully we can do it next year! - 9/10

4. Happy Gang: Szent Karácsony

I like the angelic voice, I like how slow he's singing - it makes me feel like I could learn it. The song is kind of boring though - 7/10

5. Hull a pelyhes fehér hó

This one is weird, because the backing track is Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, which I'm pretty sure isn't a Christmas song... Anyway, it was still nice to hear a backing track that we knew, even if it was kind of bad quality. As for the lyrics, they were nice and slow and clearish - 6/10

6. Karácsony: Csendes éj

This song reminds me of Mariah Carey. The backing track is again something we know - in English we call this one Silent Night and I love it! I love it in Hungarian too - 9/10

7. Mennyből az angyal (traditional)

Finally we had Mennyböl az angyal. I like this one, I like the backing track a lot. The voices are sweet, I can't really understand what they're saying at all, but I like it. - 8/10
