|Brazil Carnaval 2006!
Do you know what the Brazilian celebration called carnival is? Carnival is a party that lasts 4 days and 4 nights where people are dancing, drinking and watching carnival parades.
As many people know, the Brazilian carnaval is fast approaching. The dates of the next carnaval will be February 25th through March 1st. The dates are different each year, but they are always 40 days before LENT. Lent is a Catholic belief of the resuscitation of Jesus Christ after he died to save human kind. Many Catholic people will choose to give something up for 40 days. It is common to give up something of pleasure such as chocolate, meat, pop, etc.
This year's carnaval will be spectacular with pounding drums, exotic dances, and extravagant parades. The Brazilian samba schools have been practicing and designing their costumes all year in preparation for the big event. It is common to see them practicing their performance on the streets throughout Rio de Janeiro. Some of the most popular locations for their performances are Copacabana Beach, Ipanema Beach, and Barra da Tijuca. They choose these locations because they are usually very crowded with people enjoying the sunshine.
The Carnaval celebration can be enjoyed either on the streets, in the clubs, at the bar, and at the Sambodromo. During these times, almost
anywhere you go, there are celebrations happening. If you plan on attending this year's carnival, prepare yourself to see some scantily dressed females, and some physically fit males!
It is really important to book accommodations and flights in advance because during the carnaval, it is extremely hard to find. The Brazilian carnaval attracts people from all over the world; it's a great chance for everyone to learn more about the Brazilian culture. Don't miss out on the chance of a lifetime!
