Romance In Brazil
Valentine's Day is right around the corner. If you find yourself in Brazil for this special Hallmark day, you are likely to have all the romantic spots to yourself. Fear not, Latin America's most passionate country hasn't overlooked the event... they just celebrate it at a different time of year. 'Dia dos Namorados' or 'Day of Lovers' takes place on June 12th in Brazil. This is the eve of Saint Anthony, whose gift is to spread the love and encourage good marriages.
