Hello dear friends,

It’s December, Christmas is coming and we don’t want that all of you who stayed in Portugal far away from your families and friends feeling lonely in our beautiful city.

This way, ESN Porto is organizing a special night for you!!

Christmas Eve with a Portuguese Family
24th December


Come and live this Christmas experience! You can experience Christmas like a real local, meeting a traditional Portuguese family and trying all of our wonderful food. In Portugal, this night is celebrated with great fun and fervor. On Christmas Eve, Portuguese families gather around the Christmas tree and the Nativity Scene to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

Codfish is usually the main dish. The most popular cake is “bolo-rei”, which is a must have on the tables of any Portuguese home during the festivities, along with a variety of nuts (almonds, walnuts and hazelnuts are quite popular).

You can bring a friend with you, and to participate you just have to fill this FORM.

Don’t miss the opportunity to experience a real Christmas Eve in Porto!


For more info, just contact projects@esnporto.org.


(All the info about the family that will host you will be provided via e-mail, about a week before Christmas)


Your friends,

ESN Porto
