Good Friday -
Friday April 14, 2017

Catholic or protestant : The First Council of Nicaea (a gathering of bishops in the early days of Christianity) wanted to find a day to commemorate the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. This commemoration had to be linked to Jewish holiday traditions, since the last supper of Christ was believed to be a Jewish Passover meal. But the Jewish calendar is based on lunar and solar cycles, so the Easter celebration had to follow the same calendar.


Tiradentes Day -
Friday April 21, 2017

Secular holiday : In tribute to national hero Joaquim José da Silva Xavier, a resistant in the upraise against the Portuguese. Since he was a dentist, he was nicknamed tiradentes ( tooth-puller ). He was executed in 1789.
