    Default I need help on a small portuguese sentence please.

    I'm not really sure if its even a full sentence, but it says...
    feliz pascoa o cada uma que me acontece.

    i understand parts of it but i can't figure out what pascoa means

    I think it refers to the "passover", feliz pascoa means "Happy Easter"

    Hope this helps

    Caralho

    Does anyone know what this means out of context?

    Hi Brandon,

    The translation can be:
    Feliz Pascoa:Happy Easter
    o cada uma que me acontece: I can┤t believe what happens to me...

    Regards,
    Aline

    I see there's a second question regarding the word "caralho"... I'm afraid to tell you that it is impossible to translate that word without a context. Mind you, in some contexts that could be an obscene word.

    Default Caralho

    This word is an interjection, and is the counterpart of "shit" in english. So when something bad happens, someone might say: "caralho, how could this happen to me?".
    As in english, it does not have an original nice meaning. Caralho means (the word was banned, so I will explain: the male genitalia), though even brazilians don't think of the original meaning when they say it. Of course, it is still a very unpolite word, so adults tend not to say it, and it is considered rude when someone does.

    Hi all,

    In order to not seem offensive, and instead of that obscene word, try to use "carago", it has the same meaning as VivianneVilar explained, but it is a little bit softer and it doesn't hurt our sensible ears... it is very used in North of Portugal.

    Greets,

    Faraˇ
