Celebrations • One of the main celebrations in Timisoara is The Romania Day, on the 1st of December. We remember the revolution of 89’, which started from Timisoara, when communism failed and the last dictator was killed.
We celebrate that day by bringing crowns of flowers at the Heroes Cemetery, where people who fought against Ceausescu’s army are buried.
We celebrate Christmas on the 25 of December, we stay with our families and the girls help grandma in the kitchen while the boys drink homemade brandy, made by grandpa, and eat Romanian bacon. The kids enjoy their new toys brought by Santa. The dinner is made of Sarmale, soup, homemade pork sausages like Cartabos or Sangerete, and pork roast. The old ones prepare for winter plum brandy in the summer and the pig
that they have reared or bought. For dessert we must have Cozonac , a cake that our mothers have to work out very hard. In the evening of the 24th children go door by door and sing carols with religious songs and the neighbors give them sweets, fruits and money. The children do this on the 30 of December too when they wish everyone a good new year with a specific song.

Music Romania is a European country with a multicultural music environment which includes active ethnic music scenes. Romania also has thriving scenes in the fields of pop music, hip hop, heavy metal and rock and roll. During the first decade of the 21st century some Europop artists, such as Morandi, Akcent, Edward Maya, Alexandra Stan, Inna and Yarabi, achieved success abroad. Traditional Romanian folk music remains popular, and some folk musicians have come to national (and even international) fame.
The folk music in Timisoara is closer to the Hungarian style than to Romanian music outside Transylvania and the Hungarian music of Transylvania sounds more Romanian than the music of Hungary. The Romanian dances often have a more irregular rhythm than the Hungarian.
