Szepasszony

In Hungarian folklore, the Szepasszony is a taboo word. It is the name of the Fair Lady, a beautiful woman with long hair and a white dress. She is a female demon who seduces young men and comes out to dance in storms and hail showers.

Noon is the hour when she is the most powerful. Several expressions are associated with her. To step into the platter of the Fair Lady, means to fall under a spell or one can describe a sick child as being suckled by the Fair Lady.

Water dripping from the eaves forming a puddle constitutes a platter by which the Fair Lady can cast a spell on someone. It is considered dangerous to step into a circle of short grass surrounded by taller grass or no grass at all, since it may be the circle where the Fair Lady dances.
