Warren asks:

A friend (Iris) heard an expression (sounds like kenahora) and thought it was a curse. I remember my grandmother using that expression but not as a curse. What does it mean?

Thank you and have a Grrrreat Day.

Hi Warren,

"Kenenahora" is said to ward off the "evil eye" or any misfortune in general.

When someone achieves something, it is said to keep bad things from interfering with the good.
