El Entierro de la Sardina, Spain

April 27

Sardines at the beach Malaga Spain

Carnival in Spain, like everywhere else in the world, marks the start of Lent, a Christian religious observance. The carnival ends with the “burying of the sardine,” to end the parties, and chocolate sardines are a carnival treat. Restaurants also include chocolate sardines in their menu during Carnival.

This bizarre ceremony (Goya painted it) takes place every year at the end of Carnaval on Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent in towns all over Spain.
