Discover the most famous festival of the Canary Islands, the Carnival. Stay at one of the Hoteles Elba and enjoy this festival.
Music, colour and amazing costumes. The great Carnival festival is fast-approaching! To discover its origin one must go much further back in time, given that it is an ancient tradition. To the extent that it is unknown exactly when and why it began to be celebrated, although everything points to a Christianisation of certain pagan festivals held in honour of the gods.
More specifically, the ‘carnival’ comes from the Italian word ‘carnevale’, which takes two Latin terms ‘carne’(meat) and ‘levare’ (remove), referring to the tradition of not eating meat during Lent. During the three days prior to the commencement of Lent, practically all excesses were permitted, which is why many persons started using masks to maintain their anonymity. Over time, the Carnival has become the festival that we know today.

Do you want to save up to 25% on your next vacation? Then do not miss the offers that Elba Hotels will launch during the next Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
The origin of Black Friday dates back to the 60s in the United States. The day after Thanksgiving, small businesses eliminated red numbers from their accounts and turned them into black numbers thanks to the start of the Christmas shopping season.
The first place in which this term was coined was in Philadelphia, where city police called it “black Friday” because of the high traffic and volume of people who went out to the streets of the city in search of their first Christmas shopping.
Regarding the origin of Cyber Monday, this is more recent. This day with promotions and offers was created in the 2000s with the aim of promoting online shopping. Unlike now, at the beginning of the 21st century consumers were reluctant to buy online.
