Fête Gede is the Haitian religious version of Day of the Dead, on the 2nd of November.
Haiti, one of world’s poorest country,hit by a destructive earthquake on January 12 2010 which killed an estimate of 220,000 people. But Haitians don’t give up and walk through life as good and as bad as it comes.
On 2 November the Gede festival is mainly concentrated around the main cemetery of country’s capital Port-au-Prince. In a scene of rituals the Haitian people honour the dead and the father of them all, Baron Samedi. People dressed in black, purple or white clothes dance wild, play music and drink alcohol. Some of them are believed to be possessed by the spirits. At the day of the festival of Gede, the Haitians move for one moment in happiness.
