During this Holiday Season, we would like to wish a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year to all our readers, followers, and friends.

For over three years Feel Portugal Magazine has been publishing articles, and news, of interest to the Portuguese community residing in the US.

We are a bilingual digital magazine dedicated to all the Portuguese generations and our mission is to keep our communities connected.

With the support and involvement of our readers, organizations, and Portuguese-American Businesses our goal is to be a valuable resource of relative information for many years.

We are proud that, during 2019, we successfully covered and sponsored many cultural events in Portuguese communities.

Our success is also reflected in the over 120 thousand FeelPortugal.com website page views, and the many thousands of likes on social media.

Articles From Past Holiday Publications:

“What a privilege it has been to grow up Portuguese.  Undoubtedly, it is one of the greatest gifts my mother and father gave me. Although I am American born, my parents always made sure I stayed very connected to our roots.  In our home, we always kept the traditions alive.  Christmas Eve was no exception and was always celebrated Portuguese-style.”

“A traditional Christmas Eve dinner usually includes Bacalhau da Consoada – a salted cod simply boiled with potatoes, cabbage, collard greens, carrots, and hard-boiled eggs and then drizzled with olive oil.”

A recent visit to the Cabral family home during the Christmas Season was a wonderful treat. When Germano Cabral came to the door he was wearing a festive holiday jacket with Santa Claus printed all over it. Underneath the jacket, he wore a sweatshirt that said: “As long as I have wine the holidays will be fine”.

Merry Christmas (Feliz Natal)

Best wishes to all for a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.
