    Question A question about Carnival

    and your perspective on it...

    Carnival that doesn't fall according to the pre-Lenten timetable... do you truly consider it as carnival or carnival manufactured to court tourism dollars?

    *no i'm not considering crop harvesting festivals carnival

    for me that would depend on the history (how long they been using the dates and how they define carnival) of that particular Carnival..........somebody was either telling me or maybe I read it some years back that there was a push to move Dominica Carnival since it fell during T&T and Brazil timing.........following pre-lenten

    Now that you have SAID CROPOVER is not CARNIVAL, let us MOVE on to the balance of your POST.

    PRE-LENTEN TIMETABLE doesn't MEAN ANYTHING in today's carnival festivities because we're not CELEBRATING the PRE-LANTEN TRADITIONS of CARNIVAL.

    Do you know what the PRE-LANTEN TRADITIONS were?

    Many of the other Carnivals began at the same Lenten season but u really cannot have 123456789 Carnivals at the same time. Others change their dates so that they would have a chance and/or stand alone. Carnival is Carnival, no matter the time. As for the rip off/imitations comment, what else to expect from ignorance? Next.

    Why make the claim if you DO NOT know?

    I think Antigua is a genuine carnival because of its beginning

    Also, Cropover has significance

    but Grenada, St. Vincent, St.Lucia and wherever else is just created it for tourism dollars or whatever.

    btw all these islands steal Trinidad and Tobago stuff and try to act like its unique. From Barbados right back.

    POOR FELLA, your IGNORANCE is TRULY UNFORTUNATE.

    Nevertheless, I am here to EDUCATE your MIND.
