It seems "Carnival" (the season) and "carnivals" (fun fairs) are inappropriately intermixed in this category. Perhaps "Carnival" for the holiday and "carnivals" for the fun fairs? Other suggestions? -- Infrogmation (talk) 19:53, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

The de facto situation in the Commons is: "carnivals" for the carnivals (season, and certain events that include masquerading), and "funfairs" for funfairs. This distinction seems good enough to me, especially since in many languages other than English, the world "Carnival" is readily understood, and has nothing to with funfairs at all. --AndreasPraefcke (talk) 12:51, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

I think this should be at singular not plural, in line with other holidays, eg, Category:Christmas rather than Category:Christmases. Other thoughts? -- Infrogmation (talk) 23:52, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
