What is Carnival?
Some believe carnival originated in ancient Egypt as a Pagan feast to celebrate the beginning of spring. When Christianity spread throughout Europe, the celebration became 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. This is reflected by the name Carne – Vale, carne meaning meat and vale meaning farewell in Latin i.e. farewell to meat!
