Bendith Y Mamau


Bendith y Mamau - pronounced "ben-dith uh momay";  Carmarthenshire (Wales) name for fairies, translates to "Mother's Blessing".  Phrase is used as a prayer to protect from evil.
A stunted and ugly clan of Welsh fairies who steal not only newborn babies, but walking, talking children as well, substituting one of their ugly children, the crimbils, for the child. It is possible to get one's child back from the bendith y mamau with the help of a witch. However, when the child returns he remembers nothing of the experience except a notion of sweet music.
