EBOS (Offerings) FOR YEMONJA/OLUKUN

Fruits, particularly red or purple grapes, melons, squash, beer, gin, rum, candy, and cakes are all staple offerings. Watermelon is a favorite of this deep-water Orisha. Palm oil, kola nuts, coral, and flowers can all be used as offerings. Sheep, guinea fowl, hens, pigeons, raw or cooked fish, and palm wine are also acceptable.

Yemonja/Olukun’s day is Monday.

Alright so on my way to sister(http://koolkitten.tumblr.com/)’s uniform fitting, I saw these two people who are supposedly man &son on the road; I pointed them out to my mum’s driver and asked why they were dressed like that.& to my surprise, I was told they’re “Ogun worshippers” ie people who worship the Yoruba god of iron. 
So I present to you, Traditional Ogun Worshippers
