Unlike other parts of the world, Brazil has a different tradition for “Valentine’s day” (or more likely “Sweethearts day”). Probably because the most influential religion in Brazil is the Catholicism, It’s celebrated on June 12th.

On this day, boyfriends and girlfriends are expected to give presents and do romantic things for each other (just like Valentine’s Day on February).
