Hi my steemians friends!
Today I want to talk about Carnival! Because life is a 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! 😍😍😍
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!
