SLIDE 10 - Do we have a similar celebration in Brazil?
> The Dia dos Namorados (lit. “Lovers’ Day”) is celebrated on 12 June, probably because that is the day before Saint Anthony’s day, known there as the marriage saint. The February Valentine’s Day is not celebrated at all because it falls to Brazilian Carnival (that can fall anywhere from early February to early March and lasts almost a week.).
