Saint Jean is a typical Brazilian feast, to celebrate the day of the saint who bears the same name. This season coincides with the traditional June festival and that is why in Brazil they celebrate together and the look is the same used in both festivals. the traditional Saint-Jean makeup, with polka dots on the face and rustic clothing are the biggest hits of the month of June.
What is the feast of Saint John?
According to the Brasil Escola website, with the popularization of the pagan holiday, the June holiday, when Christianity gained strength, the Catholic Church took advantage of the date to transform this holiday into a Christian holiday. This celebration came to Brazil with the Portuguese and at the beginning it was called lady party, with reference to São João. But it was quickly renamed and was renamed Junina, because of the coming month.
The feast of St. John begins on June 13 and ends on the 24, official day of St. John the Baptist, of the Catholic Church. In Brazil, the party is stronger in the northeast and the country’s largest São João takes place in Campina Grande, Paraíba.
In addition to typical traditional foods, characterization is also important. In schools, children dress in junina, with a pigtail hairstyle, braids and polka-dot makeup on the cheek, and sardines. Of course, adults are also ‘in the groove’ of characterization, so the pajaris brought some beautiful makeup ideas for women to wear to São João party.
