But my favorite holiday is really the New Year because no matter what religion you are most people get together and have a big party. For those who live close to the beach in my country, there are a lot of fun because everyone dresses in white and we go to the beach at night to see the fireworks, while religious people offer presents to Yemanja, who is the goddess of the ocean. And, eating grapes, we make wishes for the year to come to be happy and beautiful.”
