Snapshots carnival!

It was Carnival here last week. It’s not during the whole week, but still a big holiday here. It starts friday night and ends on wednesday morning. So, we have 4 days and a half to party hard – or relax, depending on you.

When I lived in NY I realized that this is not a world celebration, but it’s sure one of the favorite holidays for us (Brazilians).

The concept is a little religious, it’s the week before lent season starts. When we are supposed to eat meat before the long time without it. But that’s only the origin, doesn’t mean that everyone knows or follow this idea.

And if you ask me the truth, it’s all about party. For real.

This year we planned a trip to the beach, but we ended up staying home. By our choice. I needed to work on my thesis for post-graduation and we knew we were going to enjoy the carnival in the city as well.

On Saturday I worked on my thesis and in the end of the afternoon we went to a bar that we used to go very often. It was valentine’s day, but the valentine’s day here is on jun-12. So we don’t celebrate the feb-14 here.
I was a little romantic just because my blog friends are from all around the world and I felt that my online world was pink and full of hearts.

On sunday we had a GREAT barbecue pool party and was SUPER FUN!
On monday ans tuesday we rest. We had lunch with my grandma and then we went to the movies.

And that’s it. Carnival is not only about parades or parties on the street. It’s about party with your friends, anywhere.

Oh, happy days.
