Valentine's Day in São Paulo

In Brazil, the Valentine's Day was celebrated last june 12th, but has nothing to do with the date of this saint. For some reason in my country it was preferred the eve of St. Anthony day ( San António - Santo Antônio), by associating this saint to the weddings, to celebrate boyfriends day.

real wedding card left in a public phone with stickers of prostitutes services. "Dodó and Cesar" are the names of the grooms.

Pão de Açúcar (sugar-loaf) is a brazilian supermarket chain. The name is inspired by the landscape of the sugar loaf in Rio de Janerio

TY for comments!

This day was 13 degrees colder in the afternoon. The winter is mild in São Paulo, minimum temperature reaches 6 degrees. But most of the winter, temperatures are between 10 and 20 degrees all day long.

Sound strange to a christian country like Brazil, but nothing is celebrated on this date.
