Country of the month: Denmark
The largest carnival in Scandinavia happens in Denmark during the last week of May. The original significance of the carnival was to embrace the coming of spring by transforming the city into a gigantic theatre. Each year, a new theme is given to the carnival-goers as inspiration for costumes and shows. The theme this year is « Til lands, til vands og i luften » : earth, water and air.The parade begins in different parts of the city and eventually meets in the center town where everyone can join in and celebrate!
