Carnival follies haven't a precise time to take place. They usually happen just before the Lent time, the 40 days period that precede the Easter. The catholic Easter date was established by the Niceia's Council, in the year 325. The key to calculate the right time for it is the equinox, the day when the sun trespasses the Equador line, up to the North, and the first Spring day. It is also the first Sunday during or after the year's first full moon. By the Middle Age, the frenchmen used to celebrate carnival with wine and sex.
Mardi Gras always falls on the Tuesday that is 46 days before Easter. It is always the day before Ash Wednesday, which is the start of Lent.
