      Thank you. This is great and I learned a few things! I knew nothing about Soul day because I didn’t live where the Ashanti tribes lives. I think the whole ritual is amazing. I’d love a feast!

      My Hausa name is Ladi meaning Sunday born. Kelewele is just about my favorite Ghanaian dish. Palm oil stew is anther favorite of mine as is oto.

    In Ghana on their birthday, children wake up to a special treat called oto. This is a patty made from mashed sweet potato and eggs and fried in palm oil. Later they have a birthday party where they eat stew and rice and a dish known as kelewele, which is fried plantain chunks. These are similar to the banana.

    The children play a very native game known as Ampe.

    Each year, Asante people in Ghana celebrate krada which means Soul Day, on the day of the week that they were born. This observance involves a cleansing ritual intended to purify the inner soul. On a person’s krada, he or she wakes up early and washes using a special leaf soaked overnight in water. An afternoon feast with family and friends is held in the person’s honor, and the celebrant usually dresses in clothing with a white background.
