Brazil celebrates New Year - 14 Sep 2006
While Carnival is often recognised as on of the biggest parties Brazil ? and the world ? has to offer, Brazil also gets in the swing of things for New Year.
December 31st is a perfect time to be spending your holidays in Brazil, with Rio de Janeiro jumping to celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of another at the party known as Reveillon.
Copacabana beach, possibly the best known stretch of sand in the world, comes alive with fireworks and samba bands advertising and celebrating the traditions that characterise the beautiful South American country.
And being a southern hemisphere country means that as the UK is enduring another chilly winter, Brazil will be experiencing a scorching summer, meaning holidays in Brazil are the perfect destination for a bit of winter sun.
A nine-hour flight from London could see you touching down in South America to temperatures around 30 degrees C, a fantastic start to any holiday in Brazil.
