So, how much do you believe in superstitions?
This is a picture of the sea goddess, Yemanja. She is very much believed in here in Brasil.
My husband found this statue of her floating in the sea outside of where we live. He thought it would be fun to have it in her house.
WELL, the maid made sure that it was understood that it was bad luck to keep her in the house. She said that only the person who found her could put her back where she belongs; into the sea. She gets very upset when she keeps coming back to our house and the statue is still here!
On New Year's Eve, many people throw offerings of flowers and I guess statues like this one into the sea. It must have just floated back, but I guess we do plan on throwing her back to "where she belongs".
So, do you believe......
