Voodoo Ritual Supplies Voodoo Papa Legba
 
Papa Legba's days are Saturday and Monday. His colors are black and red, and his number is 3. 

Some popular offerings for him are black coffee, rum, coconut, cigars, pipe tobacco, peanuts, pennies, small toys, candy, palm oil, Palm oil candles, chicken, sweet potatoes, peppers, sweets & breads.



Voodoo Papa Legba is usually depicted as an older black gentleman
. He wears a straw hat and usually has a wooden walking stick.

Papa Legba can assist in many areas of your life  from help finding work, what direction to take in your life, he is a compassionate Grandfather type and is there to help you through. He can be funny and he does love to play tricks but, if you are in need of help in most aspects of your life he is a great ally to have.

He is also the Lwa of Communications because without Papa Legba you cannot communicate with any other Lwa as he interprets your words so they may understand. Although Papa Legba does not expect much we feel he deserves only the best.

Before beginning any ceremony, making any offerings, or speaking to any of the Lwas, Papa Legba is called upon to open the gates. Light his candles, give a libation of rum (this is done by pouring a small amount of rum on the ground in front of his Altar on his Veve or other place where he is being called upon like at the Cemetery. The following is one of the chants used to call on Papa Legba:

Papa Legba, open the gates. Your children are waiting.
Papa Legba, open the gates. Your children await.
Papa Legba, open the gates. Your children are waiting.
Papa Legba, open the gates. Your children await.
Papa Legba, open the gates, Your children are waiting.
Papa Legba, open the gates. Your children await.

*Repeated three times*

Do not forget to ask him to close the gates at the end of your rituals as well as Thanking the Lwas invoked including Papa Legba.
