Is it true that the Filipino duendes become attached to children and therefore, curse them and whomever took them away from them? My mother told me
that a fortune teller warned her to keep me away from a tree because she could see I was chatting with duendes and they would curse me when I left the
country a few years later (she predicted our emigration accurately).
25 years later, every bf I've lived with has gone through some seriously hard luck. My partner was extremely lucky until me and once we got serious,
his car got broken into, broke down several times, he lost money, was threatened then kinda attacked by his neighbor...this was years ago. And, the
last year involved losing luggage, being double debited on the mortgage (chain reaction was worse), a plane ticket from the wrong country (Who know
there was a London, Canada?) and so much more...that was just las summer!
Well, this Spring he did some major yardwork and pulled invasive vines of this large tree in our backyard and literally that afternoon, things got
I've heard that duendes are appeased by offerings like coins and sweets at their trees/dwellings. Anyone know about this?
ps. I don't this the wine glasses situation was the same creature. It seems like the duendes may have protected the house somewhat from other bad
things. While they can be malicious and mischievous, I don't know that they're evil...are they?!
The Hawaiians also have similar creature called menehunes but they are not malicious.
