It’s the last weekend before Lent, the run up to Easter, so this means we are due some Carnival celebrations. I don’t know if Carnival (or Carnaval as we call it) is still celebrated in a lot of countries beside Belgium but here it’s still very much a well kept tradition.
And although my days of wearing princess costumes are long gone (my wedding not included), I still come together with my family to watch the parade. A very loud affair to be honest and probably a bit weird to watch if you haven’t grownup with it. But the one thing that always reminds me of Carnival is off course confetti, I love how tonnes of it swirl through the sky and give the streets an instant party atmosphere. And how afterwards for weeks to come you still find confetti everywhere. Something that annoys my grandmother endlessly but which always fills me with secret pleasure.
So what about you my dear reader? Do you celebrate carnival? Or are you just a confetti enthusiast like myself?
