When does Carnival 2024 fall? Can I miss work to go?

Initially, Carnival 2024 will fall on Tuesday, February 13th. Traditionally, Carnival is not considered an official national holiday in Brazil, but rather an optional event.

This means that companies and government bodies have the freedom to decide whether to give their employees time off.

In many Brazilian cities, especially those with more significant Carnival celebrations, it is common for work to be suspended during these days, allowing people to participate in the festivities. However, it is important to check the specific policies of each location or employer.

How to protect yourself during Carnival

Now that you know when it will happen, it’s time to move on to safety tips.

Pay attention to your belongings

Firstly, during Carnival, it is essential to maintain constant surveillance over personal items, such as cell phones, wallets and documents.

Using bags with secure closures and continually paying attention to your belongings are simple but effective measures to prevent loss.

Be careful with your cell phone!

Next, cell phones, a frequent target of theft, deserve special care. Considering insurance can be a good strategy, as can joining "Celular Seguro" (a government initiative that allows the device to be blocked in the event of theft.

For the most cautious revelers, using a backup cell phone during parties can be a smart solution to minimize risks.

Pay attention to passwords and tracking

Furthermore, don’t underestimate the importance of protecting your cell phone with passwords and using tracking apps. These tools can be valuable allies in case your device is lost or stolen.

Be extra careful with cards

In fact, credit cards also require attention. Tips such as loading cards in safe places, such as currency exchanges, and opting for prepaid cards can help limit damage in case of loss.

Protect your banking apps

Furthermore, digital security is another crucial point. Enabling two-factor authentication on bank apps and preventing access to these apps on public Wi-Fi networks are best practices to keep your financial information safe.

Opt for digital documents

Keeping a scanned copy of important documents can be a lifesaver in emergency situations.

This simple action allows you to quickly access your information if the originals are lost or stolen.

Monitor your accounts

Finally, keeping transaction alerts turned on and regularly reviewing your bank statements will help you quickly detect any suspicious activity on your accounts.

Always plan when going out for Carnival

Although Carnival is a time of fun, don’t neglect your financial planning. Establishing a budget for expenses during the festivities helps to avoid unpleasant surprises after the festivities.

Carnival is a magical time, but it requires responsibility so that the party doesn’t turn into a headache.

With simple measures and a little attention, you can have fun and, at the same time, protect yourself from unwanted situations. Celebrate with joy, but always safely!
