Easter in Brazil

In Brazil Easter symbolizes Jesus death ressurection. It represents for me and my family one very important day ,
because it was Jesus who died for everybody. It is celebreted on the first Sunday after lent. In Brazil it is celebreted with the
people eating chocolate eggs and the people can't eat meat, I mean, everybody just eats fish or something like that.
I celebrated Easter on this year with my family in my home. We ate fish on Friday then we ate a lot of chocolate.
I bought just chocolate for me and for my family and I got some chocolate too.
I like most in Easter to go to church and stay home with my family, because it is a special day for me and my family.
I don't like to go out, because it is a important day for celebrating.

In the USA, on Valentine's Day lovers express their love for each other by giving each other flowers, chocolate boxes and
greeting cards.
In Brazil, on Valentine's Day, lovers also express their love for each other by giving each other flowers, chocolate boxes and greeting cards,
but they also like to give other gifts, such as: cell phones, watches, I pads, books,Cds, jewelry, shoes, clothes, etc.

Time to Celebrate!

Boi Bumbá

In Brazil people celebrate Boi Bumbá's Day ( boi means ox ) in June or July, but there are other places that celebrate it during
all the year. In Maranhão, this festival is usually celebrated in July. In this festival a man has to wear an ox costume and dance. Around that man, there are other people dancing with him. During the dance, the ox is killed( it's a fake death), but after that he is resurrected with a hit on its tail and then he stands up his head and dances again. People usually eat shrimp pies,canjica, popcorn, pamonha, cake and stuff like that. People like this festival because it is very famous in Brazil and we can dance a lot together and eat really good food with our friends and family and have fun with great musics.I like this festival because it is really fun. My parents told me that Bo bumbá is very cool and the interesting thing is that my teacher, Aldaires is from Maranhão and they celebrate Boi bumbá a lot.She said she likes this festival very much. I would like to visit Maranhão and participate in this festival one day.
