What is a carnival?

In Ancient Rome, every winter was a noisy celebration of Saturnalia. In the Middle Ages people picked up this tradition. Before the great fast, when Christians do not eat meat, everybody has fun and have fun. Carnival is also arranged today. In Germany there are loud parties, and in Venice (Italy) - people wear elegant masks and costumes. In New Orleans (USA), jazz orchestras go on the streets. On the island of Trinidad and in the city of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), people dance, climbing into brilliant fantastic costumes and launching fireworks.
