Paraty's Christmas Opening

December 20th until December 25th 2019
Christmas Opening

The colonial town of Paraty gets all dessed up with flowers and lights to commemorate the opoening of Christmas, a very special celebration for the people of Paraty, but also to receive with joy and warmth the tourists that come to enjoy their holidays at Paraty.

 The Paraty Christmas it's an invitation to a real party, the joy, the brotherhood, without loosing the spirit of universal peace and love.

 A tipical event of the Christmas opening it's the Folia de Reis - Three Wise Men celebration.

 In Paraty, Folia de Reis begins in December, the feast day of Our Lady of Conception and ends in mid January. During this period, groups of musicians and  singers of traditional music come together in places previously agreed to recite Bible verses.

Following the presentations, serving dishes such as radishes, wine, sweet and salty.The last house visited every night, is common to have a iranda dance (a dance typical of Paraty). Unlike Folia do Divino, occurring at any time, the Folia de Reis only occurs during the night until dawn.

Folia de Reis - Three Wise Men?

Folia de Reis is a celebration of Portuguese origin. The celebration is linked to the Catholic cult of Christmas, brought to Brazil in the fifteenth century, and still kept alive in folklore events in many regions of the country. In the city of Paraty, Folia de Reis begins on December 8th is the feast day of Our Lady of Conception and ends onJanuary 20. During this period, different groups of singers and guitarists in traditional music come together at different points in Paraty to recite ancient poems to tell the story of the Birth of Christ.

For centuries, in traditional Brazilian culture, the celebration of Christmas have been celebrated by groups that visited the houses playing happy songs in praise of the "Three Kings" and the Birth of Christ. These festive events extend far more from the ones sctrictly devoted to the Three Wise Men. It is a tradition that originated in Portugal gained momentum especially in the nineteenth

century and remains alive in many parts of the country as is the case of Paraty.
