New Year’s Eve in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil is a festive and relaxed environment. Thousands of Bahians dress in white with their champagne bottles ready to commemorate the New Year. To secure blessings for the new year, roses are presented to Yemanjá, the orixá of the sea, while some also have a midnight sea bath. At the Barra Lighthouse (Farol da Barra), people enjoy Brazilian pop music concerts until sunrise.
