Thanksgiving in Brazil

By November 26, 2009

Follow me on:

In Brazil, Thanksgiving exists as a law proposed by Joaquim Nabuco, Brazil ambassador in the US, and signed by president Gaspar Dutra in 1949. More significantly, it is acknowledged in some churches and carried on as a tradition by North American families.

If you're celebrating Thanksgiving in Brazil, I hope you're having a happy and peaceful holiday. Travelers staying in hotels where apartments have full kitchens can even bake a turkey, a food that has become popular for Christmas and New Year meals (especially with farofa) and which can easily be found in Brazil's supermarkets at this time of the year.

I also hope somebody has smuggled a can of cranberries, an American food that's hard to find in Brazil.
