This weeks theme is EVENTS OR FESTIVALS YOU WOULD LOVE TO ATTEND/SEE AROUND THE WORLD

I have so many of these on my bucket list and according to most sites nearly everything on my list below is in the top 20 of must see/do in the world. Here I thought mine were special lol I wonder how many people that link up will have most if not at least 1 of these:

1.  The Rio de Janeiro Carnival – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

This just looks amazing and so colorful! It is definitely at the top of my list to see for sure. And I am sure hubby wouldn’t mind going for the women dressed like this:

2. Dia de los muertos (Day of the Dead) – Mexico

This one may seem strange, but it is one that I have wanted to see or take part in for a long time. The Day of the Dead celebrates death rather than fears it, and it is usually associated with the Sugar Skulls (which I would love a tattoo off)

 

3. Holi – India

Known as the festival of colours and it celebrates the end of winter and the beginning of spring you can celebrate it anywhere in the world but I would love to experience it in India.

4. Running of The Bulls – Pamplona, Spain

This is one that I wouldn’t take part in but would to see. Controversial? Yes. Dangerous? Yes. But would still love to see it none the less (along with a traditional bull fight – which completely contradicts my views on animal cruelty……)

5. La Tomatina – Spain

This one seems like so much fun, and one I would have to do on my own as hubby hates tomatoes! lol

6. Oktoberfest – Munich, Germany

7. Saint Patrick’s Day – Ireland

 

8. Mardi Gras – New Orleans

I have loved the idea of Mardi Gras for a long time, though I guess it would have been better to have seen this before I had kids etc – interested in what all the beads mean 😉

9. The Wickerman Festival – Scotland

Scotland second largest music festival to T in the Park, but the added bonus of burning a giant wickerman at the end of of the festival.

10. Up Helly Aa Fire Festival – Scotland

Last but not least, for all I live in Scotland I have never ventured up to Shetland Isles or Orkney. This is a festival I have heard of and put it on my to do list.

It is apparently Europe largest fire festival and they even burn a FULL SIZE viking ship! How awesome would that be to see??

 

What would be on you  list to see around the world?

Don’t for get to link up with us 🙂

    I’ll go to the tomato festival in Spain with you. And I’d like to visit the Scottish festivals as well. What better way to celebrate the end of winter than a festival of colors in India. What a great list, and we have a few the same.

    A lot of great places on this list! I’d love to go experience The Day of The Dead because I have an obsession with sugar skulls 🙂

    We have a few of the same on our lists! In America we have a festival called “Burning Man” during which they burn an effigy as well.
