Easter in Brazil Posted by on Apr 2, 2010 in Uncategorized

Páscoa (Easter) in Brazil follows the Catholic European tradition, with processions, church services, and religious rites. Minas Gerais in particular is famous for its lavish processions and traditional festivities. However, Brazilian Easter also follows the Western tradition of Easter eggs, the Easter bunny for children, and a big family celebration. Semana Santa, or Holy Week, is not only one of the most important times of the year for Christians, but is also a time for people to be with their families or to travel.
