Brazil, home too many cultural ethnic groups celebrates every festival in an extravagant way and Valentine’s Day in Brazil is no less than a mega social event. Gala carnivals and parades are an inherent part of this South American country which is diversified into various regions uniquely displaying the colorful historical heritage of the country. Though Valentine’s Day traditions in Brazil, are marked by a difference as in Brazil they celebrate 'Lovers Day' on June 12th, the eve of Saint Anthony's who is believed to bless people with good marriages and young couples thus celebrate their love in the same way as other people do in other parts of the world.

OK, girl, I have selected a background for you, that will match with your banner, so here goes: click "customize" on your blog, and then select "edit html". Once there (be careful here don't you delete something you shouldn't)then go to where it says: body{background-image:url and change the html codes inside the parenthesis. This is the code I've created for you, so just change your present code for this:

body{background-image:url("http://static1.grsites.com/archive/textures/pink/pink028.jpg")

If you don't like the background I can add something else.... it looks to me that instead of using hot pinks, some other softer color will look better... but is up to you.

Good luck!

Cielo

I see I'm missing something in the html code, so here it is again:

body{background-image:url("http://static1.grsites.com/archive/textures/pink/pink028.jpg")

Use this one.

Well, I guess blogger does not let me add the full html code. At the end of pink028, add this: jpg")

the parenthesis needs to be closed.

Let me know if it worked
