Premier Janvier se jou tout Ayisyen reconet com jou de libete e li fete l avec yon manje ki simple pou fe e ki te tre presie pou masters yo, men gras a Dieu esclav yo te vin gen doua pou manje produi presie sa tou.Jou sa nou pran pou fete ya nou we le mod arive reconet li com premie jou nan ane e mwen swete yo bay Haiti plas li an tan ke peyi avec tout citoyen lakay li. Jodia premie Janvier 2011 Menm Haiti sa anco ocupe pa menm group sa yo, sou yon lot Nom sou form ke yo vin ede, pendan ke yap mande prezidan peyi ya tout pouvoi le li invite yo nan kek bagay .Map di yo antan ke ayisyen nou konpran yo e menm Dieu sa kite mete Haiti lib la, Li anco la Li pap domi lap gade tout sa kap fet e lap pran not e mwen cre lap vin delivre haiti menm jan li te fe avan e foua sa le mond pral reconet Li an tan ke Roi des rois sou tout te ya e mechan yo kitap fe pep sa soufri depi tout tan li te pran liberte lia pral soufri e peye pou sa yo te fe.mwen swete pep Haitien cap soufri a couraj e gade la foua jou a pa loin pou delivrans .He will come to destroy all bad whatever you are.Viv Liberte Egalite Fraternite nou se Haitien ke Dieu beni nou

I can't stay away from it, it's a tradition and I teach my children the same thing.

This is our tradition and we can't burry it. We will take it to the grave with us. Soup Joumou, cremass and gateau are our menu for new year and my family call january 2nd (jou ate' garni) From the province were I came from, they cook a lot and put all the food in the kitchen 's little table, some on the floor and cal us one by one to pick up your plate I always look for the one which have the turkey leg, hum hum my favor.

In Haiti we had soup early morning around ten O'clock then go visiting people.

The first one was Daurismond who always had brand new dollars and gourdes passing to each kid who come as "Jour de l'an"

When I was in NY, my late sister Lili always made soup.
