soup joumou

Marie Brutus - December 30 2005, 2:40 PM

To answer your question we do both drink the liquid part of the soup and eat the solid part of the soup, you can't just swallow a piece of meat with out chewing.

I really didn't know the real meaning of soup joumou on new years until i stumble on this cite; But wasn't May 18, 1804 when the haitians got thier independence so why don't we drink and eat the soup on that day instead of january 1?

If it's for us to remember our independence why not include the soup the same we do our festival to celebrate independence day of haiti.
