The confrontation between Don Carnal and Doña Cuaresma is an example of the traditional and cultural equipment, which is intrinsic to the celebrations of the carnival in Spanish society. Besides, it is an example of the western cultural miscegenation, which join Jewish Christian traditions with and invisible thread that makes these events a single reality.
