In Voodoo, Maman Brigitte (Grann Brigitte, Manman, Manman Brigit, Manman Brijit) is the mother of cemeteries, the loa of money and death, and the wife of Baron Samedi. She may be related to the “triple” Celtic goddess of poetry, smithcraft, and healing, Saint Brigit, as her name is Irish in origin. She is usually depicted as a white woman. The first woman’s grave in a cemetery in Haiti is dedicated to her. Her colors are black, purple, and white; her number is nine; and her particular days of service include Monday and Saturday.”  ~ from PlanetVoodoo
