Floating Christmas tree
Christmas in Brazil takes place at a temperature of +35 degrees. Residents who do not have the opportunity to feel all the charm of the"snow" pleasure, decorate the Christmas tree with cotton wool flakes. Today, artificial snow has appeared on the market, and Brazilians have learned to use it instead of cotton wool.
Most of the Brazilian population is very devout and tries to attend festive church services. In the temples, the traditional Christmas Mass is celebrated here, which is called the Mass of the Rooster, in honor of the bird announcing the arrival of Christmas morning.
In contrast to the inhabitants of Europe, who celebrate Christmas with their families, Brazilians prefer to celebrate Christmas on the streets. Residents put up a Christmas tree, decorate the street with lights and dress up as Santa Claus.

And also many festive concerts, presentations and fireworks are held.
But in Rio de Janeiro on Christmas, an unusual floating tree appears, which is installed in the lagoon.
Family holiday in Brazil is considered Christmas Eve - December 24. On this day, numerous children and grandchildren (there are a lot of large families in Brazil) come to their parents' house and wish each other a Merry Christmas.
