“Bonjour la Rézoné” is a corrupted form of “Bonjour la maisonnée”, a greeting meaning “Good morning to all at home”. It is shouted from house to house on the first day of the year, the same date as Haiti’s proclamation of independence in 1804. It is also pumpkin soup day “Soup Joumou”. Why do Haitians drink pumpkin soup on New Year’s Day? Why has Haiti’s image been constantly demonized? These two questions are linked, as we will see in this “journey” to Haitian households in the Ile de France region in Paris.
