Brazil's President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva has passed Law 14.519/2023 introducing the "Dia Nacional do Candomblé".
This is celebrated annually on March 21st. The new law goes back to a project by Federal MP Vicentinho (PT-SP). The text was adopted both in the Chamber of Representatives and in the Senate (where it was edited as PLC 69/2018). The project originally envisaged a celebration on September 30th.
