Rio de Janeiro Carnival

Carnival is the most popular holiday in Brazil, the carnival in Rio de Janeiro and the richest known, attracting thousands of domestic and foreign tourists. Every year during the Carnival, the city of Rio de Janeiro breathe for five days an enviable air of joy. Cariocas forget the problems and obligations and surrender the gigantic spectacle of dance and magic. The peak of the festival is the parade of the special the sambodrome where various Samba schools compete for the title of Carnival champion. Samba, vivid colors, beautiful costumes and beautiful women are the main ingredients of this great dispute.

Although started "officially" on Friday fat, the street carnival in Rio starts as early as November when the city's samba schools begin to make so-called "technical rehearsals" in the Sambadrome. True parades where singing, evolution and rhythm are key elements, these events have attracted the city's population and surrounding areas to fill the stands, twists and sing with their schools. A true popular festival that captures more and more interest from tourists eager to attend and participate in an essentially popular carnival.

The date of the Carnival varies from year to year depending on Easter. Usually the revelry occurs between the end of February and early March. The official start of carnival is always on a Saturday and end at noon on the Wednesday following, called "Ash Wednesday". However many people have already started the celebrations on Friday. It is much in Brazil that year formally begins only after the Carnival.

During most of the nineties, was reduced to the carnival parades of samba schools and the great dances in clubs closed. The famous and traditional "street carnival" in which people spontaneously playing without paying entry, dropped out. In recent years, however, this form of celebration is being recovered.

The Carnival has several possible sources that lead to thousands of years before Christ. The word carnival may have its origin in the Latin phrase "carrum Novalis' used by the Romans to open their celebrations. Or perhaps the word "carnelevale" which means "farewell to meat" in Milanese dialect, a reference to the beginning of Christian Lent.
