  • Saint Anthony is known in Portugal, Spain and Brazil as a marriage saint, because there are legends of him reconciling couples. His feast day, 13 June, is Lisbon’s municipal holiday, celebrated with parades and marriages. (The previous day, 12 June, is the Brazilian Valentine’s Day.) He is one of the saints celebrated in the Brazilian Festa Junina (also known as the “São João”), along with John the Baptist and Saint Peter. http://bit.ly/Uzh0Zt
