Haiti's fanal lights are a sign of the holidays

For 10 years, Edme Herold has used the holidays and a skilled hand to fill his pockets with cash. His colorful handiwork: fanals, which are miniature, lantern-like homes that are part of Haiti's Christmas tradition. A candle placed inside illuminates the fragile craft and creates a stained-glass effect. The size of either a shoe box or as small as a camera, fanals are often placed in windows to light the way.
