Carnival arrived in Brazil in the colonial period as festivities, the first carnival manifestation was the Entrudo, a party of Portuguese origin, which was practiced by the slaves in the colony, after that the cords and ranchos, the party parties, the samba schools Afoxés, frevos and maracatus that also became part of the Brazilian Carnival cultural tradition.
Few know, but the Catholic Church sought to frame carnival celebrations, believing that by reversing the roles of each in society (men dressed as women and women dressed as men), the relationship between God and the devil was also reversed. With this they created the Lent, for such celebrations to happen in the days before the religious period. The Church wanted to keep a date for people to commit their excesses before the religious period.
