PORTUGUESE

1
00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:00,840
Olá.

2
00:00:00,840 --> 00:00:03,720
Esta semana vai celebrar-se a Páscoa

3
00:00:03,720 --> 00:00:04,680
e, por isso,

4
00:00:04,680 --> 00:00:07,520
hoje vou falar-vos sobre a Páscoa

5
00:00:07,520 --> 00:00:08,640
em Portugal.

6
00:00:08,640 --> 00:00:12,080
Sendo um país maioritariamente cristão,

7
00:00:12,080 --> 00:00:15,000
muitas coisas acontecem nesta altura

8
00:00:15,000 --> 00:00:16,880
do ano em Portugal.

9
00:00:16,880 --> 00:00:19,360
Ao contrário de outras celebrações

10
00:00:19,360 --> 00:00:21,640
como o Natal, por exemplo,

11
00:00:21,640 --> 00:00:25,360
a Páscoa muda de data todos os anos.

12
00:00:25,360 --> 00:00:26,360
Essa data

13
00:00:26,360 --> 00:00:27,480
depende de quando

14
00:00:27,480 --> 00:00:29,160
a primeira lua cheia

15
00:00:29,160 --> 00:00:32,920
foi após o início da primavera

16
00:00:32,920 --> 00:00:35,440
no hemisfério norte

17
00:00:35,440 --> 00:00:38,880
ou outono no hemisfério sul.

18
00:00:38,880 --> 00:00:42,320
Parece bastante complicado, certo?

19
00:00:42,320 --> 00:00:43,240
Na verdade,

20
00:00:43,240 --> 00:00:47,320
esse cálculo é chamado de Computus

21
00:00:47,320 --> 00:00:50,480
em Latim e vem dos tempos medievais.

22
00:00:50,480 --> 00:00:51,960
Falando em nomes,

23
00:00:51,960 --> 00:00:54,920
o nome português Páscoa vem

24
00:00:54,920 --> 00:00:55,440
o nome português Páscoa vem

25
00:00:55,440 --> 00:00:59,040
do substantivo hebraico Peseach,

26
00:00:59,040 --> 00:01:00,680
que simboliza a passagem

27
00:01:00,680 --> 00:01:04,040
da escravidão para a liberdade.

28
00:01:04,040 --> 00:01:05,160
Na verdade,

29
00:01:05,160 --> 00:01:08,720
essa é a principal mensagem da Páscoa,

30
00:01:08,720 --> 00:01:10,640
pois celebramos a morte

31
00:01:10,640 --> 00:01:13,280
e ressurreição de Jesus,

32
00:01:13,280 --> 00:01:14,240
que os cristãos

33
00:01:14,240 --> 00:01:16,960
acreditam ter levado à libertação

34
00:01:16,960 --> 00:01:19,440
das almas humanas do pecado.

35
00:01:19,440 --> 00:01:20,640
Em Portugal,

36
00:01:20,640 --> 00:01:23,560
a Sexta-Feira Santa é feriado

37
00:01:23,560 --> 00:01:26,800
e o domingo é o culminar da Páscoa,

38
00:01:26,800 --> 00:01:27,720
pois celebramos

39
00:01:27,720 --> 00:01:30,000
a ressurreição de Cristo.

40
00:01:30,000 --> 00:01:32,640
O chamado Domingo de Páscoa.

41
00:01:32,640 --> 00:01:33,520
No entanto,

42
00:01:33,520 --> 00:01:35,440
a preparação para a Páscoa

43
00:01:35,440 --> 00:01:38,640
começa 40 dias antes,

44
00:01:38,640 --> 00:01:41,280
no início da Quaresma,

45
00:01:41,280 --> 00:01:43,920
que é um tempo de meditação,

46
00:01:43,920 --> 00:01:46,880
reflexão e espiritualidade

47
00:01:46,880 --> 00:01:48,240
para os cristãos.

48
00:01:48,240 --> 00:01:51,120
Algumas pessoas também jejuam,

49
00:01:51,120 --> 00:01:53,920
abstendo-se de carne, por exemplo.

50
00:01:53,920 --> 00:01:56,920
Uma tradição mais recente em Portugal

51
00:01:56,920 --> 00:01:58,840
é a caça aos ovos.

52
00:01:58,840 --> 00:02:00,040
Normalmente,

53
00:02:00,040 --> 00:02:03,200
os adultos escondem ovos de chocolate

54
00:02:03,200 --> 00:02:04,240
para as crianças

55
00:02:04,240 --> 00:02:08,240
encontrarem e todos se divertem muito.

56
00:02:08,240 --> 00:02:09,080
Outra coisa

57
00:02:09,080 --> 00:02:11,240
que as crianças fazem também

58
00:02:11,240 --> 00:02:14,320
é pintar os ovos de galinha

59
00:02:14,320 --> 00:02:17,360
de várias cores para os transformarem

60
00:02:17,360 --> 00:02:19,200
em ovos da Páscoa.

61
00:02:19,200 --> 00:02:22,960
Este amigo aqui é o coelhinho da Páscoa

62
00:02:22,960 --> 00:02:25,320
e ele também é um novo símbolo

63
00:02:25,320 --> 00:02:27,520
da Páscoa para os miúdos.

64
00:02:27,520 --> 00:02:29,320
Estes jogos são feitos

65
00:02:29,320 --> 00:02:31,920
muitas vezes em família

66
00:02:31,920 --> 00:02:34,440
e a Páscoa é na generalidade

67
00:02:34,440 --> 00:02:38,120
uma celebração passada em família também.

68
00:02:38,120 --> 00:02:39,440
Em Portugal,

69
00:02:39,440 --> 00:02:41,760
o prato mais comum na Páscoa

70
00:02:41,760 --> 00:02:43,120
é o cabrito.

71
00:02:43,120 --> 00:02:46,320
Este é o filhote da cabra e a carne

72
00:02:46,320 --> 00:02:47,480
é muito tenra

73
00:02:47,480 --> 00:02:49,960
e tem um sabor muito distinto.

74
00:02:49,960 --> 00:02:51,600
Para os vegetarianos

75
00:02:51,600 --> 00:02:55,200
existem agora algumas alternativas.

76
00:02:55,200 --> 00:02:57,680
E eu sou uma daquelas pessoas

77
00:02:57,680 --> 00:02:59,960
que já não consegue comer

78
00:02:59,960 --> 00:03:01,720
um animal bebé,

79
00:03:01,720 --> 00:03:04,320
mas esta é a tradição em Portugal,

80
00:03:04,320 --> 00:03:05,720
para já.

81
00:03:05,720 --> 00:03:09,560
Há também bons doces e sobremesas.

82
00:03:09,560 --> 00:03:10,040
Temos uma

83
00:03:10,040 --> 00:03:13,880
espécie de pão doce chamado Folar,

84
00:03:13,880 --> 00:03:17,320
que é muito bom e típico da Páscoa.

85
00:03:17,320 --> 00:03:20,920
Se nunca experimentaram, têm que o fazer

86
00:03:20,920 --> 00:03:22,640
quando e se puderem.

87
00:03:22,640 --> 00:03:27,600
Mas como desejar uma feliz Páscoa em Português?

88
00:03:27,600 --> 00:03:31,520
Bem, estas são as formas mais comuns:

89
00:03:31,520 --> 00:03:36,160
Feliz Páscoa ou Páscoa Feliz.

90
00:03:36,160 --> 00:03:38,400
Pode dizer-se de ambas as formas,

91
00:03:38,400 --> 00:03:39,720
pois neste caso

92
00:03:39,720 --> 00:03:43,520
não importa se o adjetivo vem antes

93
00:03:43,520 --> 00:03:45,800
ou depois de substantivo.

94
00:03:45,800 --> 00:03:48,200
É um pouco artístico dizer

95
00:03:48,200 --> 00:03:49,920
Feliz Páscoa.

96
00:03:49,920 --> 00:03:52,960
Então não tenham medo de o dizer assim.

97
00:03:52,960 --> 00:03:55,160
Boa Páscoa!

98
00:03:55,160 --> 00:03:57,560
Esta é mais uma forma de desejar

99
00:03:57,560 --> 00:03:59,400
uma Feliz Páscoa.

100
00:03:59,400 --> 00:04:02,000
Não se esqueçam de que o adjetivo

101
00:04:02,000 --> 00:04:06,280
bom tem que ser trocado por boa

102
00:04:06,280 --> 00:04:10,160
porque Páscoa é uma palavra feminina.

103
00:04:10,160 --> 00:04:11,720
A Páscoa.

104
00:04:11,720 --> 00:04:13,840
No caso de Feliz Páscoa,

105
00:04:13,840 --> 00:04:15,640
o adjetivo não muda

106
00:04:15,640 --> 00:04:19,160
para feminino, pois termina em z.

107
00:04:19,160 --> 00:04:20,960
Então, digam-me

108
00:04:20,960 --> 00:04:22,280
como é que se passa

109
00:04:22,280 --> 00:04:24,600
a Páscoa no vosso país?

110
00:04:24,600 --> 00:04:27,480
Também fazem a caça aos ovos?

111
00:04:27,480 --> 00:04:28,560
Não se esqueçam

112
00:04:28,560 --> 00:04:31,080
de mo dizer nos comentários.

113
00:04:31,080 --> 00:04:33,600
E já agora, se quiserem saber mais

114
00:04:33,600 --> 00:04:34,680
sobre a cultura

115
00:04:34,680 --> 00:04:36,840
e também a língua portuguesas,

116
00:04:36,840 --> 00:04:38,360
vão ver a minha escola

117
00:04:38,360 --> 00:04:39,960
e os meus cursos.

118
00:04:39,960 --> 00:04:42,240
Eu vou deixar o link na descrição

119
00:04:42,240 --> 00:04:43,560
para vocês.

120
00:04:43,560 --> 00:04:46,560
Beijinhos e Feliz Páscoa.



ENGLISH:

1
00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:00,840
Hello.

2
00:00:00,840 --> 00:00:03,720
This week Easter is celebrated

3
00:00:03,720 --> 00:00:04,680
and, therefore,

4
00:00:04,680 --> 00:00:07,520
today I will speak about Easter

5
00:00:07,520 --> 00:00:08,640
in Portugal.

6
00:00:08,640 --> 00:00:12,080
Being mostly a Christian country, 

7
00:00:12,080 --> 00:00:15,000
Portugal sees a lot of things happening 

8
00:00:15,000 --> 00:00:16,880
around this time of the year.

9
00:00:16,880 --> 00:00:19,360
On the contrary to other celebrations, 

10
00:00:19,360 --> 00:00:21,640
for example Christmas,

11
00:00:21,640 --> 00:00:25,360
Easter changes dates every year.

12
00:00:25,360 --> 00:00:26,360
This date

13
00:00:26,360 --> 00:00:27,480
depends on when

14
00:00:27,480 --> 00:00:29,160
the first full moon

15
00:00:29,160 --> 00:00:32,920
was after the beginning of Spring

16
00:00:32,920 --> 00:00:35,440
in the Northern Hemisphere

17
00:00:35,440 --> 00:00:38,880
or Fall in the Southern Hemisphere.

18
00:00:38,880 --> 00:00:42,320
It seems rather complicated, right?

19
00:00:42,320 --> 00:00:43,240
Actually,

20
00:00:43,240 --> 00:00:47,320
this calculation is called Computus

21
00:00:47,320 --> 00:00:50,480
in Latin and it comes from the medieval ages.

22
00:00:50,480 --> 00:00:51,960
Speaking about names,

23
00:00:51,960 --> 00:00:54,920
in Portuguese Easter is Páscoa and

24
00:00:54,920 --> 00:00:55,440
in Portuguese Easter is Páscoa and

25
00:00:55,440 --> 00:00:59,040
it comes from the Hebrew noun Peseach,

26
00:00:59,040 --> 00:01:00,680
which symbolises the passage

27
00:01:00,680 --> 00:01:04,040
from slavery to freedom.

28
00:01:04,040 --> 00:01:05,160
Actually,

29
00:01:05,160 --> 00:01:08,720
that is the main message of Easter,

30
00:01:08,720 --> 00:01:10,640
since we celebrate the Death

31
00:01:10,640 --> 00:01:13,280
and Resurrection of Jesus,

32
00:01:13,280 --> 00:01:14,240
which Christians

33
00:01:14,240 --> 00:01:16,960
believe led to the freeing

34
00:01:16,960 --> 00:01:19,440
of the Human souls from Sin.

35
00:01:19,440 --> 00:01:20,640
In Portugal,

36
00:01:20,640 --> 00:01:23,560
Holy Friday is a holiday

37
00:01:23,560 --> 00:01:26,800
and Sunday is the culmination of Easter,

38
00:01:26,800 --> 00:01:27,720
since we celebrate 

39
00:01:27,720 --> 00:01:30,000
the Resurrection of Christ.

40
00:01:30,000 --> 00:01:32,640
We call it Easter Sunday.

41
00:01:32,640 --> 00:01:33,520
However,

42
00:01:33,520 --> 00:01:35,440
the preparation for Easter 

43
00:01:35,440 --> 00:01:38,640
starts 40 days before,

44
00:01:38,640 --> 00:01:41,280
at the beginning of Lent,

45
00:01:41,280 --> 00:01:43,920
which is a time for meditation,

46
00:01:43,920 --> 00:01:46,880
reflection and spirituality

47
00:01:46,880 --> 00:01:48,240
for Christians.

48
00:01:48,240 --> 00:01:51,120
Some people also fast,

49
00:01:51,120 --> 00:01:53,920
abstaining from meat, for example.

50
00:01:53,920 --> 00:01:56,920
A more recent tradition in Portugal

51
00:01:56,920 --> 00:01:58,840
is the egg hunt.

52
00:01:58,840 --> 00:02:00,040
Normally,

53
00:02:00,040 --> 00:02:03,200
adults hide chocolate eggs

54
00:02:03,200 --> 00:02:04,240
for the children

55
00:02:04,240 --> 00:02:08,240
to find and everyone has a lot of fun!

56
00:02:08,240 --> 00:02:09,080
Another thing

57
00:02:09,080 --> 00:02:11,240
that children also do

58
00:02:11,240 --> 00:02:14,320
is colour eggs

59
00:02:14,320 --> 00:02:17,360
in various colors to transform them

60
00:02:17,360 --> 00:02:19,200
into Easter eggs.

61
00:02:19,200 --> 00:02:22,960
This friend here is the Easter Bunny

62
00:02:22,960 --> 00:02:25,320
and he is also a new symbol

63
00:02:25,320 --> 00:02:27,520
of Easter for the children.

64
00:02:27,520 --> 00:02:29,320
These games are often

65
00:02:29,320 --> 00:02:31,920
played with the family

66
00:02:31,920 --> 00:02:34,440
and Easter is generally speaking a

67
00:02:34,440 --> 00:02:38,120
celebration that is also spent with family.

68
00:02:38,120 --> 00:02:39,440
In Portugal,

69
00:02:39,440 --> 00:02:41,760
the most common dish in Easter

70
00:02:41,760 --> 00:02:43,120
is the baby goat.

71
00:02:43,120 --> 00:02:46,320
This is the baby of the goat and the meat is

72
00:02:46,320 --> 00:02:47,480
very tender

73
00:02:47,480 --> 00:02:49,960
and it has a very distinct taste.

74
00:02:49,960 --> 00:02:51,600
For vegetarians, 

75
00:02:51,600 --> 00:02:55,200
there are now some alternatives.

76
00:02:55,200 --> 00:02:57,680
And I am one of those people

77
00:02:57,680 --> 00:02:59,960
who cannot bring myself to eat 

78
00:02:59,960 --> 00:03:01,720
a baby animal anymore,

79
00:03:01,720 --> 00:03:04,320
but this is the tradition in Portugal, 

80
00:03:04,320 --> 00:03:05,720
for now.

81
00:03:05,720 --> 00:03:09,560
There are also some good sweets and desserts.

82
00:03:09,560 --> 00:03:10,040
We have a

83
00:03:10,040 --> 00:03:13,880
kind of sweet bread, called Folar, 

84
00:03:13,880 --> 00:03:17,320
which is really good and that is typical from Easter.

85
00:03:17,320 --> 00:03:20,920
If you never tried it, be sure to do so

86
00:03:20,920 --> 00:03:22,640
when and if you can.

87
00:03:22,640 --> 00:03:27,600
But how do you wish a Happy Easter in Portuguese?

88
00:03:27,600 --> 00:03:31,520
Well, check out the most common ways:

89
00:03:31,520 --> 00:03:36,160
Happy Easter or Happy Easter.

90
00:03:36,160 --> 00:03:38,400
You can say both,

91
00:03:38,400 --> 00:03:39,720
as in this case

92
00:03:39,720 --> 00:03:43,520
it does not matter if the adjective comes before

93
00:03:43,520 --> 00:03:45,800
or after the noun.

94
00:03:45,800 --> 00:03:48,200
It is a bit artistic to say 

95
00:03:48,200 --> 00:03:49,920
Happy Easter.

96
00:03:49,920 --> 00:03:52,960
So do not be afraid to use it.

97
00:03:52,960 --> 00:03:55,160
Good Easter!

98
00:03:55,160 --> 00:03:57,560
This is another way to wish

99
00:03:57,560 --> 00:03:59,400
a Happy Easter.

100
00:03:59,400 --> 00:04:02,000
Do not forget that the adjective

101
00:04:02,000 --> 00:04:06,280
bom has to be changed into boa,

102
00:04:06,280 --> 00:04:10,160
because Páscoa is a feminine word.

103
00:04:10,160 --> 00:04:11,720
A Páscoa.

104
00:04:11,720 --> 00:04:13,840
In the case of Feliz Páscoa,

105
00:04:13,840 --> 00:04:15,640
the adjective does not change

106
00:04:15,640 --> 00:04:19,160
to feminine, since it ends with a -z.

107
00:04:19,160 --> 00:04:20,960
So, tell me,

108
00:04:20,960 --> 00:04:22,280
how do you celebrate

109
00:04:22,280 --> 00:04:24,600
Easter in your country?

110
00:04:24,600 --> 00:04:27,480
Do you also go egg hunting?

111
00:04:27,480 --> 00:04:28,560
Don't forget

112
00:04:28,560 --> 00:04:31,080
to tell me in the comments.

113
00:04:31,080 --> 00:04:33,600
Also, if you want to know more

114
00:04:33,600 --> 00:04:34,680

115
00:04:34,680 --> 00:04:36,840
and also the language in Portugal,

116
00:04:36,840 --> 00:04:38,360
check out my school

117
00:04:38,360 --> 00:04:39,960

00:04:39,960 --> 00:04:42,240
I will leave the link in the description

119
00:04:42,240 --> 00:04:43,560

120
00:04:43,560 --> 00:04:46,560
Kisses and Happy Easter.
