It reminded me of the "lucky" spots we were directed to in the church by our volunteer guide.

When we got inside the church, Maggie pointed out the "lucky" spots and said something about her friend being "carried off by fairies." I wish we had been braver to inquire further, but it's not the sort of thing you want to be rude about - especially where the fairies might hear you.
Church, Family, Death, Luck, and even Fairies all seemed to fuse into a beautiful whole in Wales.
