This Hungarian word is at least 610, at most 1000 years old. Its first recorded written mention was in 1405, but the word itself was probably born after King Saint Stephen I (997-1038 AD) enacted, that the fair (vásár) must be held on the last day (nap) of the week, when people go to church.

vasárnap [‘vɑʃaːrnɑp] – Sunday

vasárnap <– vásárnap (fair-day) <– a vásár napja (day of the fair)
