Here is a picture of several fanales that were constructed for Christmas in Haiti. Fanals come in different forms and shapes. They are sold in the streets.
This tradition of Fanale in Haiti originated from the people who used to work at night in the dark. In order to see where they were going, they used candles, and the fanale came as a way to protect the candle from the wind. The tradition evolved in Haiti and became a Christmas tradition.
