Corpus Christi in Brazil

Corpus Christi is a Christian observance that honors the Holy Eucharist. It is also known as the Feast of the Most Holy Body of Christ, as well as the Day of Wreaths.

Is Corpus Christi a Public Holiday?

This is a holiday for the public sector and government employees (ponto facultativo), so most non-essential government offices will be closed. Private sector offices and stores may have reduced hours.

Bread and wine are usually offered during Communion, or Eucharist, on Corpus Christi.
