Iemanja is a  goddess in the Brazilian myths and she is the deity that has control over the waters. It is important to appease her with gifts such as flowers on New Year’s day. Candles are lit on the beach, flotation devices are made with flowers as well as material goods as offerings that get sent out into the ocean to the goddess Iemanja. It is a very spiritual ceremony  based on the past and this tradition has been in existence even before the country had transformed Christianity in the predominant religion.
