    The Carnival Season

    Soon it will start.

    In some countries it has started already.

    Do you like it?

    Re: The Carnival Season

    Just in case some do not know what Carnival is:

    The term Carnival is traditionally used in areas with a large Catholic presence, as well as in Greece.

    In historically Evangelical Lutheran countries, the celebration is known as Fastelavn,[6][7] and in areas with a high concentration of Anglicans (Church of England/US Episcopal Church), Methodists, and other Protestants, pre-Lenten celebrations, along with penitential observances, occur on Shrove Tuesday or Mardi Gras.[8] In Slavic Eastern Orthodox nations, Maslenitsa is celebrated during the last week before Great Lent.

    In German-speaking Europe and the Netherlands, the Carnival season traditionally opens on 11/11 (often at 11:11 am). This dates back to celebrations before the Advent season or with harvest celebrations of St. Martin's Day.
    More about it: Carnival - Wikipedia

    Re: The Carnival Season

    I find it hedonistic. It exposes the history of Catholicism's effort to attract pagans and their rituals into the Church.
    We walk by faith, not by sight.

    So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

    The Church was opposed to Carnival for most of its history.
    Only lately does the Church tolerate Carnival, and only half-heartedly.

    Re: The Carnival Season

    It doesn't affect my life any but if it makes some people happy, so be it.
    So you think this is a Christian Nation?
    One thing is for sure. No Christian Nation would ever have someone like Donald Trump for a President.
    Tell you what, lets just drop all that ridiculous pretense..Ok? Nobody believes it now.

    Didn't Jesus speak to the "pagans", in the story of the Samaritan woman at the well?

    Very few people actually believe this unfortunately.
    I reply to almost every post. If I don't reply it is because our conversation reached a conclusion or because you are on ignore and I don't consider you worth talking to.
