RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – Observed every year on June 12th, Dia dos Namorados (Lovers’ Day/Boyfriends, Girlfriends’ Day) honors love and relationships in Brazil and features celebrations similar to Valentine’s Day with dates, flowers, dining out, gifts, decorations, and parties.

While most countries, including other Portuguese-speaking nations, celebrate Valentine’s Day in honor of Saint Valentine in February, Brazil does not celebrate on February 14th due to the date’s proximity to Carnival celebrations.
