New Taloo: St John's Eve Celebration

Salut chers! I put on my Orisha robes and headed over to the opening of the new library in Taloo, where a St John's Eve celebration was going on. Kudos to Miss June and Miss Bedlamie for their hard work... Although celebrated in other parts of the world, it is considered one of the most important days in the Voodoo/Vodun religion, and the St John's Eve rituals of New Orleans' voodoo queen Marie Laveau used to draw a crowd of thousands. No drumming and crowds of thousands at this gathering...we just danced...
