His entry regarding Poland is as follows:The Poles have their were-wolves, which rage twice in the year--at Christmas and at midsummer.According to a Polish story, if a witch lays a girdle of human skin on the threshold of a house in which a marriage is being celebrated, the bride and bridegroom, and bridesmaids and groomsmen, should they step across it, are transformed into wolves. After three years, however, the witch will cover them with skins with the hair. turned outward; immediately they will recover their natural form. On one occasion, a witch cast a skin of too scanty dimensions over the bridegroom, so that his tail was left uncovered: he resumed his human form, but retained his lupine caudal appendage.Has this happened to you? Is this legend still remembered in Poland? Is this legitimate Polish folklore regarding werewolves?
