Pampos is a picturesque town in southeastern Brazil and has become synonymous with the festive season.
The festive atmosphere is punctuated by traditional Christmas lights and the decorations of a number of local churches.
The decor is set on the main square, where Santa Claus stands in the traditional Santa suit, accompanied by a reindeer, a toy carriage, and a pair of sleigh bells.
In the past, a number toadstools have also been set up in the town square.
However, in the last decade, there has been a resurgence in decorating in Pampás, as locals have begun to decorate their homes with a more cosmopolitan and Western-inspired style.
The decorations, which include a Christmas tree, a Christmas clock, a giant Santa Claus, and other decorations, have also become popular with the international public, who can visit Pampases churches for the traditional Christmas celebrations.
Pampas residents can also expect to find more Christmas trees, decorations, and Santa costumes at the town hall.
In a move that is expected to help boost tourism, Pampasa has been expanding its Christmas decorations and will open up the town to the public from the end of January.
Pampa is the largest municipality in Pernambuco state, and has a population of more than 2 million.
A number of towns in the state also have a Christmas theme, including Santa’s Village, which features Santa Claus with a sleigh, and Luta da Tijuca, which is decorated with the decorations and a Santa hat.
