Some stores in London have already got Christmas departments. Why not avoid the chilly festive season altogether and head to tropical Brazil? New Year in Rio de Janeiro is for those who like to party big-time. Rio is the only place in the world where 2 million people gather in a gorgeous setting, Copacabana beach, to celebrate the past and the future year with music, dance and a spectacular firework display. The skies will light up whilst bands play until the early hours of the morning. You could be one of those on the 31st of December, to live a magic moment, that is just….quintessential Rio!
