Carnival

Especially in the provinces of Limburg and North Brabant, carnival is a big event with a lot of traditions. The carnival princes take over the power of the civil authorities in villages and towns in a symbolic handover of the keys. Everybody is dressing up and celebrating in cafes and restaurants. On Shrove Tuesday around midnight carnival mascots and symbols are burned, buried or drowned. On Ash Wednesday, daily life is back.
