“Any one can lose their hat in a Faerie Wind” – Irish Proverb.
Where does it come from, where does it go and why do they sometimes suck Humans up into them, never to be seen again…?
The Faerie Wind: Mother Nature’s very own transport system. Some say riding within the wind are the Good People themselves, moving from one place to another.
Up an above pesky Humans who would only get in their way.
But mind the passing Faerie wind, for the Good People are known to demolish or snatch crops or precious items as they pass.
Oh, and they sometimes suck Humans, livestock and dead souls up into their whirling dervish too!
Kitty offers some tips on what to do, and what not to do if you see a Faerie Wind approaching.
