Santera priestess Chuchita touches with the tip of her tongue a slaughtered goat's head during a sacrificial Santeria ceremony in honor of Saint Barbara's feast day, in Bahia Honda, Cuba, Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2012. In Cuba, the Catholic saint is associated with the Santeria diety Chango, the orisha of lighting, fire, and war where believers pay tribute to both every December 4 with offerings of flowers, fruit, burning candles, the beating of drums and animal sacrifices.
