On New Year’s Eve in Brazil, millions of people, of all religions, dressed in white gather on the beach to greet the New Year, watch fireworks, and throw flowers and other offerings into the sea for the goddess Iemanjá, in the hopes that she will grant them their requests for the coming year. Some send their gifts to Iemanjá in wooden toy boats.
