Mensagem:  Hi folks,

I've seached in this forum about Festa Junina and found that Dale commented :

I would leave it "Junina party".  Note that it is "party" and not "Party".  

I know it is a Braziliam tradition and to vert it into English is would not represent the same meaning . 

But a group of friends of mine  is ( or  are ?) discussing this term. Some say it would be better translated as June Festival , others as a feast and some desagree that party is the same of festa in this context .
Here are some opinions :

June Festival, porque são várias festas e diferentes tipos de comemorações durante todo o mês, relativas a 3 datas religiosas - pelo menos em princípio, se bem que as festas juninas são mais folclóricas que religiosas .

Aqui na minha escola sempre utilizei expressão "June Feast", por entender party como algo mais restrito, uma festinha mais particular ou balada. Fui ao dicionário da cambridge conferir:

PARTY: a social event where a group of people meet to talk, eat, drink, dance, etc., often in order to celebrate a special occasion

FEAST: a special meal with very good food or a large meal for many people

o google tradutor acaboude me informar "June Festival".

a special day or period, usually in memory of a religious event, with its own social activities, food or ceremonies; 2-an organized set of special events, such as musical performances

So, let's rethink this term and reach a conclusion ?

PPaulo, would you please proofread my post ? I learn a lot when my mistakes are pointed out .
