Wish Bracelet Questions:

Q: What is the meaning of the Brazilian Wish Bracelet? What does the writing mean on the bracelet?

A: The Wish Bracelet is a unique tradition from Brazil. In the 1800′s these ribbons were worn for protection and for granting of wishes by Senhor Do Bonfim (our lord of the Good End). Today, Bahia Bands are worn around the wrist and for the same purpose: to receive protection and good luck in life.

The writing on the ribbon says ”Lembrança do Senhor do Bonfim da Bahia”, or in remembrance of the lord of Good End, savior of Bahia, or Souvenir from the God of Bahia.  Learn more about Brazilian Wish Bracelets.
