Carneval is a big time of celebration all across the Catholic world, so it should be a surprise that its celebrated in Catalunya as well. Of course, when its cold enough for there to be frost and snow on the ground, no one goes about in skimpy costumes like they're in Rio, but people do like to put on a bit of a show to ward off the February blahs. In Ribes de Freser, some of the local shops show their festive side with decorations in their windows. I got this snapshot of a shop assistant dressed up like a French maid, tending to her scarecrow friend outdoors. In true Catalan fashion, sweets are all on display for the festivities, so dig in!
