Christmas food in Brazil Posted by Adir on Dec 19, 2012 in Culture, Vocabulary
Christmas is one of my favorite épocas of the year so I decided to make a little video with some typical Christmas food here in Brazil.
Unlike in the US, down here we have a very warm Christmas so we usually have a lot of cold drinks and in the video I also included some desserts! Oba!
