Friday April 7
Part of the Christian Holy Week, Good Friday commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus and his death at Calvary. In many areas, it is a municipal holiday marked by the closing of stores and schools.
Sunday April 9
Occurring on the Sunday following the first full moon of Spring, Easter is the Christian holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. Easter is commonly celebrated by attending church services, decorating and hunting for eggs, and snacking on chocolate bunnies and candies.
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.
