Brazilian believers of Yemanja celebrate the deity at year's end, offering flowers and launching boats, large and small, into the ocean in exchange for blessings in the new year. The belief in the goddess comes from the African Yoruban religion brought to America by West African slaves. (AP Photo/Victor R. Caivano) -
