the 8th deadly sin!

Carnavale: Gluttony for the Flesh!!

The concept of Carnival is total freedom to everybody (something alien to this part of the world) including men, women, boys and girls who could do whatever they liked and go wherever they wanted during this period without any remorse or scrutiny, cutting out the need for making enquiries or telling lies.
One of the most popular & colourful festivals of Goa, It is one of the most eagerly awaited events of the year. Though essentially a christian festival, all people of Goa, irrespective of their faith and religion take part in this festival. The word Carnival has been derived from the Latin word "Carnavale" which means to throw away meat or abstain from 'the flesh'. The main highlight of Goan carnival is to have fun by indulging in singing, dancing, feasting, etc. before the 40 day abstinence period of Lent before Easter.

In the late 19th century, the cordões (literally laces or strings in Portuguese) were introduced in Rio. These were pageant groups that paraded through city avenues performing instruments and dancing. Today they are known as blocos (blocks), consisting of a group of people who dress in costumes or specials t-shirts themes and/or logos. Blocos are generally associated with particular neighborhoods and include both a percussion or music group and an entourage of revellers.
