Today’s Holiday:
Benin National Vodoun Day

Vodoun is an ancient African pantheistic religion. When it was brought to the Americas by African slaves, it was blended with elements of Christianity into what is known as “Voodoo.” The present African country of Benin, situated on the former kingdom of Dahomey, is known as a center of Vodoun culture. This day is celebrated throughout Benin with processions, Vodoun rituals, dances, and even an international film festival.

Look in my eyes,and tell me you love me
Tell me you love me, or darling I’ll be gone
(Gone, gone, gone, gone)

Look in my eyes,and tell me that you’re the
One for me, and that our love will always be
Or darling I’ll be gone (gone, gone, gone, gone, gone)

You said it that time
So glad you’re all mine
What’s it to be? Do you wanna be?
And let me know,a little more time
Have that love to be ,or darling set me free

Look in my eyes,and tell me you love me
Tell me you love me or darling all be gone
(Gone, gone, gone, gone)

Do-oooo di,di,di,di,di
Do-oooo di,di,di,di,di
