GOING VEGAN AFTER CARNIVAL?
Did you know that Carnival actually means - without meat? Thats the root of the word:
[Italian carnevale, from Old Italian carnelevare, Shrovetide : carne, meat (from Latin car, carn-; see sker-1 in Indo-European roots) + levare, to remove (from Latin levre, to raise; see legwh- in Indo-European roots).]
Italian carnevale, alteration of earlier carnelevare, literally, removal of meat, from carne flesh (from Latin carn-, caro) + levare to remove, from Latin, to raise
Although the festival has roots in pegan roman holidays it has been turned to a pre-lent "last feast" party before giving something up.
Since I already gave meat up... what am I going to give up now?
