Let it snow
Snow in many Nordic languages has dozens of synonyms, but that's not the case in Portuguese. "Neve"means snow. That's it. However, snow is part of the everyday life in Winter time at Serra da Estrela, the highest peak of the Portuguese mainland. The place where the winter magic happens. Our Winter wonderland.

Especially in the inland of Center of Portugal, there is the enduring tradition of piling up wood in front of cathedrals and churches and to lit the “madeiros”, the bonfires or Yule-Logs. A way of bringing communities closer, as well as a symbol of the spirit of solidarity and brotherhood so typical of this holiday season.
