According to information from Coluna Financeira, Brazil will gain a new holiday in 2024. Law 14,759, sanctioned at the end of 2023, establishes National Zombie and Black Consciousness Day, a celebration that already took place in some Brazilian states. The law was signed by President Lula and published in the Official Gazette of the Union on December 22.

The Bill (PL) was initially proposed in the Senate by senator Randolfe Rodrigues (Rede-AP) and approved by the Education Commission in August 2021, during the term of then president Jair Bolsonaro. Subsequently, the project was forwarded to the Chamber of Deputies, where it was reported by deputy Reginete Bispo (PT-RS).

Before Lula sanctioned the national law, the date was already considered a holiday in six states, covering around 1,200 cities. November 20th, chosen for the celebration, marks the death of Zumbi dos Palmares, leader of Quilombo dos Palmares. With the inclusion of this new holiday, the month of November now has three commemorative dates: All Souls’ Day (2), the Proclamation of the Republic (15) and, now, National Zombie and Black Consciousness Day.
