Carnival around the world

This festivity takes place before Lent in many Catholic countries. Its date may vary depending on Ash Wednesday. Half-pagan, half religious, carnival is a time of irony, good humour and disinhibition. Although each country celebrates carnival keeping their own traditions, they share the joy of wearing costumes as well as going on carriages on colourful parades
with music around. In other countries, Mardi Gras is celebrated the day before Ash Wednesday. However they use this term to refer to Carnival time too. If you haven't thought about what to wear, here you are some sites of the most popular carnivals in the world and links to get some ideas from. Have fun!
