🎭 "Life is a Carnival!" 🎭

in life •  11 months ago

Hi my steemians friends!

Today I want to talk about Carnival! Because life is a carnival!

🎉 🎉 🎉


🎭 Carnival

The Carnival is a festive Western Christian and Greek Orthodox season. Generally celebrated in February or early March, carnival involves a public celebration or parade. The inhabitants wear costumes or masks, makeup ... and meet to sing, dance, make music in the streets. It is a convivial and warm moment that allows to modify and shake conventions and social rules. I love it! 😍😍😍


🎭 Origins

The Carnival tradition dates back to the Paleolithic (minus 15,000 to 10,000 BC). It dates from the discovery of "the man in the mask" in the cave of the Three Brothers in Ariège in France. In my country of origin, I'm so proud 😆😆😆!

It is from the Middle Ages that the mask was used as a costume. Then, under the reign of Francis I, this accessory reappeared in the form of the "loup" (from Italy). Under Louis XIV, the ballet artists dancing for the King had a "loup" to masked their faces.


🎭 The modern Carnival

The Carnival has its origins in Europe where it developed before spreading around the world!
Nowadays, carnival masks can range from simple "wolf" to the most elaborate makeup or masks. But their function has remained the same: to hide the faces of the participants to allow them to have fun in complete freedom!

Life is like a carnival. The cotton candy is all of the sweet things in your life. The carnies are the unwanted junk. The rides represent all of the diversity and choices

Thank you! Beautiful post!

I've actually haven't been to a carnival before despite I have been travelling quite frequently. It's such a shame for me but I will definitely take note of these carnivals so that I wouldn't miss any for my upcoming travels :) Nice photographs :)


You have all your life to go to a carnival! Do not worry! ;)

Very nicely written :) It's always nice to read your blogs :)

Great experienced about carnival!!

My experience is with Mardi Gras, and I have always loved it. Easily one of my favorite holidays. I'd love to go visit the other versions around the world. Be sure to share your costume! My grandmother used to make all of the costumes for the kings/queens of the large mardi gras krewes in New Orleans.

I want to visit any carnival. The person who enjoys it already he knows the moment of this. Maybe the best feelings and moment of life

Muy atractiva tu publicación, y me uno al comentario del amigo venezolano que te acaba de comentar. Es cierto que aquí , en mi país nos gusta la fiesta, y más aún cuando ésta celebra la vida, la alegría.
Noté que al inicio de la publicación escribes afirmando que es una fiesta cristiana occidental, en realidad es primera vez que leo que su origen es cristiano....
Excelente pulicación!!! Saludos desde Venezuela

So .. what will your costume look like ... Do you mind giving us a hint ..... @flamingirl

If you are actually looking for a mental happiness my page is your boon
Be sure you will find the psychological comfort of that I invite you to visit and follow-up, God willing

They have a Mardi Gras event in Mobile Alabama where my daughter lives. Quite an event. They have what they call a King cake there that is just delicious. They put a plastic baby in it to represent the baby Jesus. The person who finds the baby in his piece of cake is blessed with having to buy the cake in the next year.

Thats the best for d city

Hermosas imagenes , aqui en venezuela a pesar de los problemas que hemos tenido nunca perderemos esa tradicion de salir a las calles disfrazados ,porque si hay algo que se le reconoce al venezolano es que nunca nos damos por vencido ,saludos.

Another great article. Just a week back we took kids to the carnival. And it was a hell of a experience. Right from the food, stalls, concert to rides. Everything was super cool. I think it was an excellent time to socialize, gather and enjoy !

Did you participate yourself in one?

Here in Cebu Philippines, we have this so called sinulog festival. Your photos are so lively and colorful.

super interesting post. I really want to travel the world one day and i think experiencing different carnivals from around the world gives you a great sense of the culture an traditions places have to offer .

Is Sitges carnival going to be your first carnival to go for the first time? I would love to go to one of these carnivals wearing beautiful costumes and face mask! Sounds so intriguing! Look forward to your next carnival photos!

I've never heard of this before but I think I just added it to my bucket list. the costumes alone are fuckin' GORGEOUS. It sounds like a mushroom trip without the drugs. So many colors and beautiful things in one place at one time. Thank you for showing us some of the beauties around the world we may have yet to uncover.

Nice to see that you've listed my country Trinidad & Tobago as having one of the best carnivals in the world!!

Take a look at the post I wrote about the Ivrea's carnival, in Italy: it is very special, thanks!

Good post.
Mardi Gras should be at #1 :)
