Happy New Year!
"On New Year’s Eve, a million or so Cariocas traditionally gather on the great curving beach of Copacabana to watch the fireworks display over the water. Afterward, everyone tosses flowers or other gifts into the ocean waves as an offering to the goddess Iemanjà, who will not only keep you from drowning in the following year but will bring you good fortune as well." —Peter Ryan, Letter from Rio: Feckless and Reckless, The American Scholar
