Story, Folklore, History
The well-known festival called Carnival (literal translation is farewell to meat, part of a Catholic tradition that marks the time before Lent), was celebrated in Europe during the Middle Ages and is celebrated today all over the world. It can be traced even further back to African roots, celebrations of the harvest to honour spirits that are still practised today. The spread of Europeans to the Caribbean brought the tradition of Carnival from Europe and the colourful dress, dancing, music and celebration from Africa.
