Tiradentes (Brazil)

Friday April 21

Joaquim Jose da Silva Xavier, known as Tiradentes, was a leader of the separatist liberation movement Inconfidencia Mineira, which aimed to free Brazil from Portuguese rule. After the institution of the First Brazilian Republic in 1889, the anniversary of his death (April 21) became a national holiday. While there isn't much in the way of festivities on this day, public officials make addresses; schools, businesses, and banks close; and many Brazilians enjoy the holiday at home.
