12 de outubro – Dia das Crianças

Have you noticed that suddenly every Brazilian on Facebook has changed the profile photos to childhood pictures?

Well, that’s because on October 12th we celebrate the Children’s Day, o Dia das Crianças.

On this day, kids usually receive a gift from their parents and grandparents. Therefore, all the toy stores throughout Brazil are completely jam-packed with kids!


On the same day, there is also a religious celebration, the day of Nossa Senhora Aparecida, which is another name for the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus. Since Brazil is a country with a strong religious tradition it is a National holiday, which means that there is no school or work!
