It celebrates the transition between the military dictatorship of that period and the 2nd Republic. The government of Marcelo Caetano was put down by the Carnation Revolution. It was named this way because during the Revolution innocent blood wasn’t shed. The soldiers had carnations offered by the people in their guns instead of bullets. Thecarnationsrepresented a change, a newlife! <br />

  21. 21. THE LEGEND OF BODO<br /> Bodo wasbornwhen a Catholicwoman, D. Maria Fogaça, organised a procession which headed to the Chapel of NossaSenhora Do Cardal. At the end of the procession the woman made two cakes to give to the priest. The cakes became very big and she couldn’t take them out of the oven. She ordered a servant to solve the situation. The servant got into the oven and put the cakes right and then got out of the oven without getting burned. This was considered a miracle.<br />THE LEGEND OF BODO<br />

This happens on holidays, in July so that everyone can enjoy it.<br />We can also try new experiences, for example, we can enjoy different things at the amusement park, like carrosels.<br />During Bodo celebrations , Pombal receives a lot of people, from different countries and of different nationalities.<br />Me and my friends spend a lot of time there, because it happens only once a year and it's something wonderful. <br />
