Games and Sports

Brazil loves futebol (soccer) like other countries. Basketball and volleyball are also very popular in Brazil. Children play card and board games too if the parents can afford it.

Holidays

Brazil has three favorite holidays: Easter,Childerens day(October 12) and Christmas. Amigo Secreto(secret friend) common tradition amount friends and family during Christmatime. The beginning of December then they write the name on the paper(everybody participate but does not revel the name throughout the month. Us ape lidos ( fake name) and then exchange names.

School

Between ages seven and fourteen are required to go to school on Monday through Friday. They go in the morning or afternoon but never both. They were uniforms until high school. Science and math are more emphasized in many school. Some Childeren can't go in school because they can't afford it.

Things I do and what I want to see

If I lived in Brazil I would want to watch the futebol games(sports) and speak their own language. I want to celebrate their holidays( Childerens day). I notice that most kids can't get food or education so I would want to hep them with food,health,medical treatment and education.
