Antroxu Xixón (Carnaval)
Antroxu is the Carnaval festival in Gijón, Asturias, Spain. It is similar to the Fat Tuesday/ Mardi Gras festival in Louisiana during late February. The Carnaval holiday in Gijón includes a day off for many businesses and the fun of dressing up. When I was first told about it, I thought oh, like Halloween. But, it is much more because it includes both adults and children. I was a bit iffy about dressing up at first but I am so glad that I did! I had a ton of fun hanging out with friends!
