Republic Day in Brazil is a public holiday that is observed every year on 15th November. It is the commemoration of the end of the Empire of Brazil and the proclamation of Brazil as a republic on November 15, 1889. This led to the formation of the Federal republic of Brazil. It marks the anniversary of a new type of regime established by Marshal Deodoro da Fonseca who had just facilitated the overthrow of Dom Pedro II by the military coup. Since then the Brazilian Government and its people celebrate the Republic Day of Brazil. This day is celebrated by all the Brazilians because before their freedom their people had dealt with slavery. They mark the proclamation of Republic Day because democracy has provided opportunity for all.
On this day in Brazil most employees and students are given time off. Most people therefore stay at home and enjoy quality time with their friends and families. The Brazil National flag is raised throughout the country. Parades and concerts are held on the streets. This is followed by a series of meetings and celebrations all over the country with public figures making their appearance and speeches.

Since becoming republic in 1889, there have been different periods of the republic, with the latter being superior to the previous period. This has seen different people celebrating Republic Day for different reasons. For instance, the period between 1889 and 1930 is the old Republic, in which the economy was based primarily on agricultural production and primary product export. The government discouraged industrialization. Therefore, after this old period most Brazilians find celebrating Republic Day a significantly worthy opportunity. They celebrate the overcoming of the old republic by the new republic because industrialization is now possible.

The new republic offers a modern lifestyle giving the perfect reason to celebrate.
