S is for Skrzat #AtoZChallenge




Behold, a wet chicken!

Origin:  Poland



Description:  The Skrzat is a house faerie that looks like a wet chicken that drags its wings and tail behind it leaving sparks.  You too can grow your own Skrzat by carrying a malformed egg under your arm pit for nine days.  He/she hangs out in the hay loft and steals corn.



Disposition:  If you can get over the corn thievery, having a Skrzat is good luck and will bring you great fortune.

  1. I spit my coffee out when I saw that picture! I now have a "no drinking" rule when visiting your blog...

    That seems like a lot of trouble to go to (9 days??) to grow a Skrzat...as well as smelly. I guess the great fortune would be a strong motivator but I'm afraid my Skrazat would soon leave me as I'd laugh at it everytime I saw it.

    Awesome pick for 'S'!
