The Mallorca Carnival is also known as Els Darrers Dies (The Last Days), in reference to the last days in which meat can be eaten before the start of Lent, in accordance with Catholicism. The festivities begin on the Thursday of Dijous Jarder and continue until the weekend, when there are parades with crowds of people in fancy dress. It is normal for people to go out in fancy dress in the evening during this weekend. To round off the celebrations with a touch of ironic humour, in many places a "enterrament de la sardina" (sardine burial) is held, at which many people dressed in mourning act out the burial of a sardine.
