The Notting Hill Carnival (London)

The Notting Hill Carnival started in 1966. It takes place in August, every two days. More than one million people come and watch it every year ! Many people from the Barbados, Jamaica or Trinidad participate in the Notting Hill Carnival, because their parents moved to London in the 1950s and 1960s. If you go to this carnival, you will have beautiful floats with fantastic decorations, music bands and a great atmosphere !

Saint Patrick's Day (Ireland and the USA).

Saint Patrick is the Patron Saint of Ireland. He brought christianity to Ireland. Saint Patrick died on 17th, March. So, the Irish people celebrate their Saint Patron on this date !
