If you get caught with drugs, you won't go to jail. You get to see medical, social and psychological workers and they will discuss your life choices with you and if you are addicted and need help.
Portugal had a serious drug problem a few decades ago and completely solved it that way. There are far less drug addicts now than in other countries.

Edible chestnuts aren't found in the Americas, they all died out. Inedible chestnuts are used for decoration though.

Most of the post is right, some are arguable, but #7 is wrong. If you come to Portugal to see Carnival you wasted your money. There is nothing special about it. Cold, rain, and a few local celebrities. Miles away (many many miles) from what is described on this post.
Instead, the São João night in Porto (23/6) and the Santo António night in Lisbon (12/6) are the best nights.... everyone is in the streets, parties with music, food and drink in every neighborhood in those towns. If you want to mingle with the locals in these towns, those are the nights to do it

They have a serious relationship with football.

Football for Portuguese people is like a religion. Traditionally, Lisbon is divided into 2 parts: one part of the residents root for the “SL Benfica” club, the other part roots for “Sporting.” Moreover, a serious struggle is also present between the clubs of Lisbon and Porto. It is noteworthy to mention that if the members of one family are rooting for different teams, when their clubs have a common game, the closest of relatives become rivals and often taunt each other.

Here is what a guy who visited this country noted, “Now for Christmas, it’s time to visit the family! Back to Portugal. Upon arriving, the very first thing I see on the airport’s monitor wasn’t the plane’s arrival schedule or the luggage belt schedule, it was a football match on Sport TV.”
