“The Faery Godmother, (or good mother, as the Welsh call her) is the Faery who brings her special gifts to the newborn. The godmother’s ancestors are the Celtic Triple Matres, or Mothers is - who watch over places such as wells, springs, and the home, and over the course of our lives - and the Greek Fates, the three women who spin, measure, and cut the thread of man’s destiny. In Albania, godmothers are known as Fatit, appearing the third day after a child’s birth to bestow the gifts of fate. In Latvia, the Laume, a household faery, presides over the three major events of life: birth, marriage and death.”
