Last day of the carnival

Exactly at noon, carnival will be over for another year. You do like carnival, or you don't.

For the die-hard fans it were four days of festivities and not sleeping a lot. Especially in towns like Aalst carnival is a must. Also here in Heist the fishermen celebrate carnival quite heavily. Well, you can understand that. Their lives are hard and they never know whether or not they'll return frm sea. That is why they start their carnival with a mass for those lost on sea.

This year, the carnival makers had a lot of fun with politics (as usual) but also IS (and more especially Jejoen Bontinck) were target of fun. Because when you can't laugh at things, you better be dead, they say.

I'm not much a lover of carnival. I find it foolish to dress up in a silly costume and go out drinking for a couple of days. Not my thing. I prefer a good dinner or just being at home, with a glass of wine and good company.

What about you?
