See Brazil Carnival photos !!!

Carnival follies haven't a precise time to take place. They usually happen just before Lent, the 40-day period preceding the Easter holiday. The Catholic Easter date was established by the Niceia's Council in the year 325 A.D. The key to calculate the right time for it is the equinox, the day when the sun passes the Equator, up to the North, and the first spring day. It is also the first Sunday during or after the year's first full moon.

Carnival activities around Brazil normally take place from the Friday prior to Ash Wednesday and continue up to and including Ash Wednesday itself. In some cities the celebrations will spill over through the entire week and include the following weekend. Most Brazilian offices and business will close for the week of Carnival in much the same way companies in many parts of the world close between Christmas and the New Year.
