    In this Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2013 photo, Afta Bervaly Chery, 5, takes pictures inside her home before her mother leaves for the market to buy ingredients for a special soup prepared on New Year's Day, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. One of Haiti's New Year's traditions is the making and eating of the soup, "joumou," Creole for a butternut squash stew. Jan. 1 is a national holiday that marks the country's independence from France as the world's first black republic. After Haiti secured its independence in 1804 Haitians began eating the dish to celebrate the revolution and their subsequent freedom. (AP Photo/Dieu Nalio Chery)
