Why do we have day and night? A Brazilian legend says there was always daylight on Earth until the African goddess Iemanja’s daughter left her ocean home to marry a land dweller. When Iemanja’s daughter became homesick for the cool, shadowy world under the sea, her mother sent some of the darkness up to her, and now we have night on land as well as day.
