  • We Wear the Mask BY PAUL LAURENCE DUNBAR We smile, but, O great Christ, our cries To thee from tortured souls arise. We sing, but oh the clay is vile Beneath our feet, and long the mile; But let the world dream otherwise, We wear the mask! Daniele Krauz www.essencialensino.com Why should the world be over-wise, In counting all our tears and sighs? Nay, let them only see us, while We wear the mask. 25/02/2014 We wear the mask that grins and lies, It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,— This debt we pay to human guile; With torn and bleeding hearts we smile, And mouth with myriad subtleties.

Come February or March (dates vary by country and celebration, and are often timed to liturgical calendars), many hungry revelers5 in the U.S. celebrate New Orleans–style. (1) 25/02/2014 Also known as Carnival, Carnaval, Carnevale, Fat Tuesday, Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day, Fastnacht, Fastelavn, and Maslenitsa, Mardi Gras is celebrated many different ways around the globe, but eating well is a common theme. In the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox traditions, Mardi Gras is considered the last call for the faithful¹ to eat meat and other rich foods before Lent (a six-week period of penitence and fasting² before Easter) arrives.

More than twelve escola de sambas, or samba schools, compete in categories of costumes, dance, and percussion. Escola de sambas include the floats, costumes, dancers, and musicians. They are also known as samba schools because the first escola de samba practiced in a grade school. The parades in Rio are known asbandas, with more than 10,000 participants per parade, the bandas go around most of Rio de Janeiro's neighborhoods.(2) 25/02/2014 In Brazil, the celebration is supposed to go on from the Saturday before Mardi Gras until Mardi Gras Day, but in some Brazilian cities the celebration can last seven or eight days. Just like New Orleans, not many important things are decided in Brazil from New Year's Day to Mardi Gras Day because they are preparing for or celebrating Carnaval (Portugue se for Carnival). Most Brazilian parades have a theme, or enredo, which could be political, historical, or a tribute to someone. The parades had to have a theme that related to Brazil until 1996. Some cities in Brazil do not have a street Carnaval but they might have an indoor ball.

In the mid-afternoon, nearly 1,000 Gilles converge on the town's Grand Place, trade their masks for large ostrichfeather headdresses, sing, dance, and pelt4 the crowd with blood oranges, a symbol of fertility. 25/02/2014 Before dawn on the day of Mardi Gras, a drumbeat summons1 the residents of Binche, a Belgian town of 32,000 near the French border, into the streets. They come to chase away winter and participate in a folk tradition, dating back to the 14th century, that UNESCO has designated a cultural treasure. During the carnival, you'll see Pierrot, Harlequin, and peasant2 costumes, but the central characters are the Gilles—local men wearing wax masks, wooden clogs3, and elaborate black, red, and
