In all cities in Brazil, we have a big party on New Year's Eve, especially in Rio de Janeiro where people go to the beaches to watch fireworks.

The party's preparation begins on the morning of the 31st. The fireworks start at midnight, and they last around thirty minutes.

Then everybody makes wishes for the new year: money, love, health.

This party used to be a kind of religious party, but today it has become a big show for tourists and citizens. Normally we host more than two million people.
