Carnival - 21 February

Carnival is a  social phenomenon, that remote to an era, long before the christian time. To a time ere many civilizations practiced it, In ancient Egypt, Greece and Italy in the time of the Romans.
people from different social classes, gathered in public squares, with masks and decorations, to drink wine, dance, sing and deliver the most diverse whoredoms.

Canival is probably
the annual festival whose origins are revealed the most controversial of all. This is due undoubtedly to the fact that this celebration resented the deep conflict between Christianity and Paganism.

may have originated from the Latin expression "carrum navalis" referring to the naval cars that made the opening of the feasts in Greece, in the seventh (VII) and the sixth (VI) centuries BC or "carnem levare" which means, "farewell to the flesh/meat", expression that came to take place after the implementation of Christianity as a way of remembering the fasting of Lent.
According to some historians, the carnival starts at the beginning of our civilization and dates back to ancient Sumer and Egypt, the origin of the rituals are celebrations of fertility and harvest the first crops on the banks of the Nile, more than six thousand years ago.
In ancient Greece, celebrations were in honor of Dionysus, god of wine, culture and transformation. According to mythology, Dionysus was expelled from Mount Olympus, and whenever he returned to Greece in the early days of spring was greeted by his faithful worshipers, with exotic dances and many drinks.In ancient Rome, the feast was celebrated in the streets by the priestesses who worshiped Bacchus (the Latin name of Dionysus). The priestesses danced and chanted throughout the city, causing the disorder, which spread to the people passing in the streets.
t is clear that the valence of the meat is in the exaggeration of its consumption, since these classical festivities were guided by food, drink and sex, to give joy to the body in favor of fertility rites, this may have contributed for the prohibition of meat consumption and abstinence after the catharsis of the carnival, as well as any pleasure associated with food, drink or sex.The church seeing this and powerless to counter these pagan festivals, decided to accept this on their calendar, a period that precedes Lent.
