Brief History of Carnival
Carnival is an ancient tradition closely linked to Lent, which began several hundred years ago during the Middle Ages.

Lent is the 40 days that Jesus fasted and prayed in the desert. For this reason many Christians abstained from eating meat and to practice their vices during that period. Consequently Carnival began as a celebration for fun and let off steam exceeded with parties, food and wine before Lent.

The last day of Carnival it is known as Shrove Tuesday or Mardi Gras. And the first day of Lent is called Ash Wednesday, celebrated 40 days before Easter Saturday not counting Sundays.
