Junine Feast

The Junine Feasts were brought to Brazil by the Portuguese, which at first were called “Joanina” to be in honor of São João (Saint John). Common elements in Brazil were aggregated by various influences such the quadrille dancing (French), fireworks (China) and dancing with ribbons (Iberian). In each region, these elements were mixed with regional characteristics, resulting in small differences. In the south, where the cold is more intense, comfort beverages and foods that were introduced such as quentão (made of hot sweet wine, ginger, cinnamon, apple, orange) , boiled pine nuts and hot dogs, in addition to foods based on peanut and corn, common to all regions of Brazil.
