Introduction

While carnivalists in Trinidad and Tobago, Aruba and other parts of the Caribbean are nursing hangovers, Martinique will be in full swing as they will be beginning the final and most exciting day of their celebrations as the Carnival runs an extra 24 hours.

As if this was not enough about three weeks into Lent, the island comes up with a dawn-to-dusk reprise of Carnival in miniature, an official holiday known as Mi-Carême (mid-Lent), where the fasting is suspended for 24 hours and the revelry starts all over again.

Of course, the festivities actually start early in January, with parties every weekend and many other activities in the run up to carnival.
