Mojo, a slang word for self-confidence, self-esteem or charisma. Is your mojo working?! Notes: I got Gris-gris for you! pronounced "Gree-Gree".
Gris-Gris, also spelled grigri, is a voodoo amulet originating in Africa which is believed to protect the wearer from evil or brings luck, and in some West African countries is used as a method of birth control. It consists of a small cloth bag, usually inscribed with verses and containing a ritual number of small objects, worn on the person.
Mojo is a term commonly encountered in the African-American folk belief called hoodoo. A mojo is an amulet consisting of a flannel bag containing one or more magical items. It is related to the West African word "mojuba," meaning a prayer of praise and homage. It is a "prayer in a bag," or a spell that can be carried with or on the host's body. Alternative American names for the mojo bag include hand, mojo hand, conjure hand, lucky hand, conjure bag, trick bag, root bag, toby, jomo, and gris-gris bag.
Although most Southern-style conjure bags are made of red flannel material, most seasoned conjurers use color-symbolism. This practice embodies itself in the practice of hoodoo, where green flannel is used for a money mojo, white flannel is used for a baby-blessing mojo, red flannel is used for love mojo, and so on. West Indians also use mojo bags, but often use leather instead of flannel.
Please note: because New Orleans is hosting the 2013 Super Bowl XLVII, Mardi Gras festivities will pause for
(AIEEE! We gon pass a good time here! , cher!) 9 days during the Carnival season, and then resume after the Super Bowl. Mardi Gras, or "Fat Tuesday", is the last day of the Carnival season as it always falls the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Most visitors will plan to arrive no later than Saturday, February 9, 2013 in order to enjoy an extended weekend of festivities.

Mardi Gras colors. Rex selected the official Mardi Gras colors in 1872. The 1892 Rex Parade theme Symbolism of Colors gave meaning to the colors:purple represents justice; green, faith; and gold, power. Remember to wear the Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and gold during Mardi Gras whenever you're not in costume!
