Carnival (moved from Main Page)

  • Actually, one theory on the origin of the name "Carnival" (and thus the word in general) is that it comes from "Carne vale" "Farewell, meat" in Latin. There are other theories, but most center around Latin "carne".

Calling Mardi Gras Carnival doesn't mean it's becoming secularized. Religion is actually the origin of the term.

Changed quotes and put the Rick Vanderknyff one back on the Quotes page: it's about actual theme parks, rather than this trope.
