Where does the expression "festival, festival!" Come from?
I'm in a play right now in which the characters (who are bloodthirsty) all go crazy and start screaming and chanting and such at one point (yes, these characters are insane). While the director was reminding what to do, when we all started screaming he screamed "festival, festival!" I forgot to ask where it came from, and I understood what he wanted us to do so frankly I didn't want to bother him. But now, it's really bugging me. Does anyone know where it came from?
