Brazil Public Holidays 2012

I don't work in an office, in a full time job anymore so I thought that public holidays were irrelevant to me until Sophie started school this week. 

After experiencing ridiculous traffic jams to the beach on public holiday weekends and ridiculous accommodation prices over said holiday weekends, our plan is to generally try and do the opposite of what your typical Brazilian would do. For example, go to the beach in the winter and the interior in the summer, book accommodation and flights months in advance (particularly now that we are limited to school holidays) or just stay at home!



  1. Don't forget to add any city or state holidays that apply to where you live. For example, in Sao Paulo 25/Jan was a city holiday (city anniversary) and 9/Jul will be a state holiday (Revolution of '32).
