Farsang is a Hungarian folk holiday, which takes place before the beginning of lent, and is celebrated somewhat like Carnival or Mardi Gras, with dressing up in costumes and large feasts.

It is a big deal for school kids in Hungary, where they have an event at school where they get dressed up and put on a performance.

Nate has only been in óvoda (preschool) for 2 weeks, but he participated in the Farsang celebration this past Saturday.
He dressed up as one of his favorite characters: Woody the Cowboy, and performed along with the kids in the show that they did.

He had a really good time, and we were so proud of him that even though he doesn't speak Hungarian he was able to learn a lot of the hand motions and the words for the show.

Here's a video:
