THE HAITI BOX SET - FREE TASTE #3

As a former French colony, Haiti inherited the European celebration called Carnaval, which emerged in medieval times as a period of excessive indulgence before the abstinence of Lent. Coming in the dead of winter as a harbinger of spring, Carnaval celebrates eating, drinking, dressing in costume, and all forms of transformation, transgression, playful obscenity and humor. (including political humor, piking fun at the church and state and the heirarchy of social relations)
