Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff Re-elected

 

Brazil 2014 Presidential Elections

 

Dilma Roussef - from site aquivoceficasabendo

On Sunday 26th October 2014, Brazilians experienced one of the tightest election contests in their history. The eagerly awaited results came out at around eight o’clock in the evening and confirmed a second mandate for President Dilma Rousseff, who won the presidential elections with a very narrow majority of 3.28%.
The country was politically strongly divided, with the South of the country mainly voting for the political candidate Aécio Neves and the northern part of the country preferring Dilma. President Dilma now has to bring the Brazilian people together by working on issues that matter to the whole population like improving education, fighting corruption and revitalizing the Brazilian economy.

Brazil loves Easter

 

Easter is one of the most festive events among Christians worldwide, and is largely celebrated in Brazil. It commemorates Jesus Christ’s resurrection from death, as written in the Christian bible.

Páscoa in Portuguese, falls on the day after the culmination of Holy

Week, which also marks the end of Lent. Since many institutions and businesses, as well as schools,  allow for an extended weekend, many Brazilians spend the holiday either traveling for the sake of traveling (and to witness religious processions such as the one in Ouro Preto) or spending the time with family.

Paixão e Fé (Passion and Faith), a song by Tavinho Moura and Fernando Brant recorded by Milton Nascimento, poetically expresses the season’s spiritual tone and describes the passage of a procession.

Known for being one of the most popular festivals and one of the largest public demonstrations of Candomblé faith, the celebration of Yemanja in the Rio Vermelho neighborhood began in 1923, when there was a decrease in the fish supplies.

The fishermen gathered on the 2nd February to ask for help from the Godess of the Seas, Yemanja.

Year after year, fishermen and believers, regardless of religion, gather throughout the night and the following day to offer gifts to their Queen Yemanjá.
