Brazilian Carnival

The Carnival of Brazil is a yearly celebration organised in between the Friday afternoon and Wednesday at noon, which marks the beginning of Lent, the 4r-day period before Easter. On specific days of Lent, Roman Catholics and some other Christians traditionally abstained from the usage of meat and poultry, hence the term “carnival,” from carnelevare, “to remove meat.”
