In Peru summer begins in January and goes until March.
January is also the beginning of Lent, which begins
the Carnival that lasts the entire summer. During the
Carnival there is throwing of water balloons and sometimes
eggs. It is really quite dangerous to go out walking during
this time, unless you would like to get attacked by water
balloons.

Another tradition that I learned from my mother is that of
Fat Tuesday. Fat Tuesday is the day before Ash Wednesday in the
Catholic Church. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season
of Lent. Many years ago the Polish people began Fat Tuesday
where they would celebrate by eating jelly-filled donuts during
this day. This symbolized the last day of eating rich, fatty
foods before the fasting during the Lenten season began.
