About Carnival Tuesday
In Grenada, The Carnival Tuesday is celebrated annually as a spice mass with full of enthusiasm. This event takes place in the towns and villages through out Grenada and there will a huge street parade in the capital city of St. George which includes calypso musicians, steel bands and colored costumed dancers. This Carnival is celebrated on the Islands since the Europeans first occupied the Islands. In Grenada there will be a public holiday on this carnival and the entire island gets in party spirit and love to enjoy the exciting and colourfull event. Actually the word carnival originates from the Latin word “carne levare” which means "farewell to meat” and is celebrated at the beginning of the August and lasts for 10 days. There is a traditional belief of French and Romans that people who wants to eat meat they can eat and enjoy before the Lent days could start and once the Lent is started they wants to maintain the fast strictly. The catholic communites of Grenada who are resettled in Trinidad with their slaves were very much interested in celebrating this carnival. In Caribbean the carnival is celebrated in the month of August which is called one of the hottest months in Caribbean. So the Carnival Tuesday is celebrated with the feeling of emancipation which makes the people to feel free from their bondage and come together forgetting their status to celebrate the feast with sound of music, dances, food and coloured costumes with street bands by forgetting all their days’ pain.
