Country of the month: Brazil
Get the Carnival Fever
Every February, the biggest Carnival of Brazil takes place. The annual festival is held between the Friday afternoon before Ash Wednesday and Ash Wednesday at noon. This marks the beginning of Lent, the forty day period before Easter. Brazilians come together to dance in the streets, and the best dance schools compete in big colorful parades.
Go to Brazil to learn how to samba!
