Carnaval 2014 – Carnival Google Doodle


Carnaval do Brazil 2014 Google Doodle

This Doodle is presented by Google on March 4th in Brazil.

The Carnival of Brazil is an annual festival held during the Friday to the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of Lent, the forty-day period before Easter. On certain days of Lent, Roman Catholics and some other Christians traditionally abstained from the consumption of meat and poultry, hence the term carnival, from carnelevare, to remove meat. Carnival has roots in the pagan festival of Saturnalia, which, adapted to Catholicism became a farewell to well things in a season of religious discipline to practice repentance and prepare for Christ’s death and resurrection.
