In Brazil, Festas Juninas – June parties – are celebrated in June. These festivals honor Saint Anthony (June 13), Saint John (June 24) and the Saints Peter and Paul (both on June 29). The celebrations originate in Europe as the midnight parties. In Brazil, June is a winter month, and it is considerably colder, especially in the south and southeast. It is not uncommon to find hot drinks and a bonfire on such a June party. Wherever possible, the dishes are heated on a traditional wood oven.
