The Origin of Carnival
The Carnival is a festival very popular which arose in Antiquity with the aim of celebrating the pagan gods and nature. Was recognized by the Church and included in the christian calendar after many centuries, still being celebrated a little bit by the whole world.
It is estimated that there has arisen in Greece, around the year 520 a. C., on a feast in which the wine was paramount, and people gathered in the name of the god Dionysus to celebrate the arrival of spring and fertility. The name Carnival comes from “Carne Vale”, whose meaning is linked to the fact that the pagan festival happen during the three days preceding Lent. And was as if it were a kind of farewell to the pleasures and sins, where everything was allowed and forgiven.
You already know that it is Carnival and no one takes the evil, so, have fun, but always with respect for others.
