As the year winds down, Brazilian worshippers of Iemanja celebrate the deity, offerings flowers and launching boats, large and small, into the ocean in exchange for blessings in the coming year. The belief in the goddess comes from the African Yoruban religion brought to America by West African slaves. (AP Photo/Felipe Dana)
