A common greeting heard in Brazil around Christmastime is Boas Festas (Good holidays) or Feliz Natal! (Happy Christmas)!
A highlight of Christmas celebrations in Brazil is making huge Christmas “trees” of electric lights. These “electric trees” can be seen against the night skies in major cities such as Brasilia, São Paulo, and Rio de Janeiro throughout the season. As is the custom in the United States, families also set up and decorate Christmas trees.
