WORLD WIDE NEWS
It’s Carnival time, baby!
Hundred and hundreds of years ago, the followers of the Catholic religion
in Italy started the tradition of a costume festival right before the first day of
Lent. Because Catholics are not supposed to eat meat during Lent, their festival
is called carnevale — which means “to put away the meat.” Still today, Carnival
in Italy is quite famous and we can take part in this celebration also in France,
Spain, and all the Catholic countries in Europe.
With the influence of
the French, Spanish, and Portuguese in the
Americas and other parts of the world, their tradition of celebrating Carnival
came with them, especially in Brazil: Carnival festivities in Rio de Janeiro and
Salvador are the most famous ones.
** Lent: Quaresma
CARNIVAL AT CMRJ (2016)
On February 5th, all the sixth-grade students and their teachers had their
Carnival celebration. Their Carnival block is called “CATIMARIMBAU”.
The idea of creating the block came when Teacher Ricardo Bussi de Oliveira,
in 2011, at the time teaching Arts to the sixth-grade students, brought to the school
context the concept of folk art. It was part of his project the creation and confection
of masks by the students. The name was chosen by Teacher Sylvia Maria, at the
time Arts teacher/coordinator, and comes from "Cate Marimbau", expression present
in the “CMRJ cry”.
Here are some pics of the event. Our gratitude to Teacher Alfeu Barreto for
1. Carnival float; 2. Flag; 3. Costume; 4.
Garland; 5. Food stand; 6. Confetti; 7. False
nose; 8.Clown; 9. Paper streamer; 10. Bunting.
