One kiss and Good Luck... Prof: Melissa
Hi people! I´m glad to be back.
Moving on, I decided to write to
you about the great tourist attraction which marks the turning of the
year in Rio: New Year´s Eve in Copacabana.
During this true festival of peace,
several millions of people come together each year on December 31, the
vast majority dressed in white, to await the arrival of the New Year
which is marked with a massive and unforgettable spectacle of fireworks
displayed at midnight. Interwoven throughout the New Year celebrations
are the religious and mystic aspect of a number of Brazilians which have
as one of their gods, the queen of the sea, Iemanjá whose feast day is
celebrated with the turning of the year. Thousands of offering of
candlelight are thrown out into the surf to pay homage to Iemanjá.
All the hotels get ready for the
great party, by preparing sophisticated meals and offering ultimate
hospitality to the tourists. Most residents take to the streets to
mingle and have fun by watching the fireworks from the beach. Indeed,
this is the planet´s greatest fireworks show that is really worth
Apart from Copacabana, Rio´s city
hall organizes festivities in other parts of the city, such as in
Flamengo Park, Leblon and Barra beaches, in downtown, and in the western
and northern zones. In other words, all except those going to private
parties come out to celebrate in the streets.
The party goes on into the early hours and the festive climate which started in mid December, continues until the end of summer.
