However, Carnival dates vary, from Epiphany to Ash Wednesday Eve. The period known as Carnival — probably from the Latin caro or carne levara, meaning ‘‘to take away meat’’ and ‘‘a farewell to flesh’’. It begins anytime after Epiphany and usually comes to a climax during the last three days before Ash Wednesday. And especially during Mardi Gras, time of feasting and revelry in anticipation of the prohibitions of Lent.

Still observed in most of Europe and the Americas, carnival features masked balls, lavish costume parades, torch processions, dancing, fireworks, and noise-making. And, of course, feasting on all the foods that will have to be given up for Lent. Traditionally, Carnival includes only the Sunday, Monday and Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. But sometimes it begins on the preceding Friday or even earlier. In Brazil, Carnival is the major holiday of the year.
