Carnival is celebrated before Lent in many countries around the world in radically different forms http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPKKC1vRiB8&feature=fvst.

The word “carnival” is derived from the Latin word carne vale which translates into farewell to meat. On Shrove Tuesday in Britian they make pancakes. In other countries they wear wild costumes with exotic masks and have parades and parties that last for days.
