Season’s Greetings!
Sunday’s solstice is just a matter of perspective. From where we sit, it marks the ‘official’ beginning of winter, but in Brazil, it’s the first day of summer.
It’s also the final weekend before Christmas, so we’ll lay out a festive musical spread of gingerbread Bossas and mistletoe Sambas to entice you to enjoy a few ‘Holiday Favorites’ with us on The Sunday Brazilian Brunch!
