“Masopust” (porkfest) is an age long Bohemian and Moravian tradition going back all the way to the 13th century. The word it-self translates into ‘good bye meat”. Traditionally, “Masopust” takes place before the start of “Lent”, a forty day span of prayer, fasting and penance, and is celebrated for a duration of three days preceding “Ash Wednesday”. These three days are filled with excessive eating, drinking, and dancing as it is believed that if a person ate and drank a great amount during these festive days, good health would accompany them for the entire year.
