Holidays & Observances in Brazil

Brazil is a Portuguese country in South America. With the 5th largest population in the world and one of the fastest growing major economies, Brazil is predicted by many to become a major world power within the next few years. Brazil’s culture stems from indigenous Amerindian people, descendants of former African slaves, and Portuguese culture. It is the largest Portuguese speaking country in the world. Holidays in Brazil are famously wild and elaborate. Rio de Janeiro especially hosts huge parties and parades to celebrate holidays such as New Years and the well-known Carnival. People travel to Brazil from all over the world to take part in these celebrations.
