I am atheist but of all gods and religions aroun, Candomble and Yemanjas really caught my imagination.
Yemanja, one of the orixas, is the water deity, mother of fish and humanity. Protector of the pregnant women and sailormen.
Today is her day, when parties are carried throughout Brazil in her honour, when gifts are given: flowers (white flowers preferred) and parfums.
Some pics of todays party:
