Brazilians celebrate the month of June with parties that are called Festas Juninas ( Festa Junina, singular ). Festas Juninas celebrate catholic Saints Antonio, Pedro and João, with lots of traditional foods, music, drinks, and a theatrical dance inherited from the French called quadrilha (a type of square dance).

Also have you ever seen a translation for Cinco de Mayo in the US? Neither have I.

So many things have no translation, rather a translator's note, or cultural context in which they are explained.
