Death. If you think that it means the end, then allow me to introduce you to someone.
You thought it was all over, but Baron Samedi is going to change your mind. The only fire here is in the water, so share a drink with him. Let the sights and sounds entrance you. Join the celebration, feel your pulse pounding so hard you've forgotten your heart stopped beating.
Forget what you think you know. There is a life after death, and Baron Samedi will be your guide. So come along and let Baron Samedi show you the wonders of a whole new world, and that even a god of death can be the life of the party.
Bawon Samdi sometimes comes to earth as a ragtag beggar, but he usually wears formal attire, which includes a top hat, a tailcoat, and a long black cane complete with a skull handle. Although his dress may indicate otherwise, he is a trickster, and he spends much of his time engaging in lewd, licentious behaviour as he ridicules those who take themselves too seriously. Bawon’s presence is a constant reminder to those in the land of the living that all must succumb in the end to Bawon, ruler of the afterlife.
Bawon Samdi smokes strong cigarettes and drinks, in addition to kleren, black coffee, vodka, or gin. His favourite foods are black goats and black roosters. His symbols are a skeleton, a coffin, a black cross, and farm implements. Like Gran Brijit, Bawon is associated with the colours black, purple, and white. Because they live in cemeteries or in hidden locations, their realm is the earth.
