Trinidad Carnival Exposed


carnival-2004-2323

Are bikini Carnival costumes better than full-body Carnival costumes? The answer is the same as asking if a BMW Roadster is better than a Toyota Corolla. Both  get you to the same place but the ride isn’t the same.

This year, full-body Carnival costumes are  once again cheaper than bikini costumes because of low demand. The number of women who want to cover up is declining as more women see the light and the need for proper exposure. Still, a small number of people prefer to see covered bodies since, according to these people, too much exposed flesh in public can promote a good time.  As much as full-body costumes provide more surface area to be creative, bikini mas is more attractive and mainly responsible for the popularity Carnival enjoys today. Carnival is about enjoyment and pleasure and not for displaying works of art on bolts of cloth. Only the pretentious would think otherwise.

The Meaning of Carnival

The origin of the word Carnival is a bit unclear but not the meaning. One suggestion is the word Carnival originated from the Greek prefix carne which means meat eater. Another suggestion is that it was derived from the Italian carne levare meaning to remove meat. There is a third suggestion which says the word Carnival comes from the Latin expression carne vale, which means farewell to meat. So, whether you are eating meat, removing the meat or saying goodbye to the meat It’s Carnival.

  1. I like the Roadster/Corolla comparison.lol I wonder if any of the small number of people that prefer to see coverd bodies are male?
    Wow I did not know about the word origin. In taht case I’m for banning the full-body costumes. On second thought they might be a good idea for the very heavy people.
