You may not believe, yet febuary is one of the most festive months in the year. The only reason is that many Carnivals are organized then. Wonderful period of the year- what's not to like - abundance of food, drinks, fun, plenty of dancers, entertaining programs. So, travellers, choose a destination...
There are some theories concerning the origins of Carnivals. One of them is related to the beginning of Lent. Other widespread theories claim that the celebrations are intended to drive away the bad spirits. There are too many festivals over the world. We will examine only the most spectacular and famous ones.

Venice Carnival

This is my favourite. The conseption of Venice Carnival is to remove the social status. That way people will become equal even for a while. Everybody wears wonderful ornated masks. The program includes many events, such as balls, dances, parades and many others. Fireworks, performances and acrobatic tricks and focuses make the spirit of Carnival even more irresistible and compelling. There is also a contest fot the best mask.
