So when do you think Valentines Day is celebrated all around the world. 14th February? Well, 'No'.
Surprised? Even I was, when I first came to know that in Brazil, Valentines day is celebrated not on 14th February but 12th June. So if you thought that yur Brazilian Girlfriend or Boyfriend whom you met over the internet would wait for a flower bouquet only on 14th February, my dear darlings, you are mistaken. Start your preparations of the way you want to surprise your Brazilian Love – send Valentines Day Flowers or Valentines day gifts or whatever you think would be the best.
Brazilians call this day as "Dia dos Namorados", that is, 'Boyfriend's/Girlfriend's Day'. Celebrated every year on 12th June, this brings a lot of fun to the country. There are shows, concerts and musical events in huge numbers all over Brazil and the Valentines Day is celebrated very religiously. The Brazil population spend this day with friends, family and relatives. They engage themselves in activities like cooking of special meals, arranging for a party, taking part in party celebrations, going for sightseeing to plaxes associated with "Dia dos Namorados" with a special person. Dance and music are integral to the occasion.
So we know that "Dia dos Namorados" is not just about spending time with your girlfriends or boyfriends (although the name is just about that) but about being together with the Family & friends.
