Ghosts And Spirits Index





Literally "church folk" in Finnish, these are little misshapen beings to be found beneath the altars of churches rather than staunch Christians. When the female kirkonwaki are experiencing a difficult labor, a Christian woman's laying her hand on the altar will relieve this, and, being grateful, they will reward her with a gift of gold or silver.
