Good morning friends,

#Carnival #festival started from today to till 1st march 2017, what is carnival? Some basic points are here.Carnival (in #Portuguese: Carnaval) is a Catholic event by origin, but is also rooted in #European pagan #traditions. Originally, Carnival was a food festival, because it was the last time to eat abundantly before the 40 days of Lent, a period of frugality starting on Ash Wednesday. Legend says the word ‘Carnaval‘ was derived from the Latin expression ‘carne vale‘ which translates as ‘farewell to the meat’.
