When does Carnival 2024 start?

In principle, Carnival, with its floating date, is defined based on Easter, always 46 days before it.

In 2024, therefore, the revelry is scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, February 12th and 13th, preceding Ash Wednesday on the 14th.

This festival, which transcends the religious aspect, has become a cultural phenomenon that reflects the diversity and cultural richness of Brazil.

After all, is Carnival a holiday or an optional event?

Here’s a curious detail: Carnival is not technically a national holiday, but rather an optional event.

This means that releasing work on these days is at the discretion of each company or institution, so everything will depend on the agreement between the employer and employees.

Can I miss work to skip Carnival?

As previously stated, on optional days, absence from work is not automatically justified, as they are not considered official holidays.

Therefore, to miss work without penalty, it is essential to check the internal policy of your company or public body.

Some organizations adopt the optional position and release their employees, while others maintain their normal activities.

It is always recommended to confirm in advance and, if necessary, formalize the request for time off in accordance with the workplace rules.
