(Slavic) Lady Midday is a unique demon that appears before laborers working in the fields during the hottest parts of the year. She will appear asking tough questions, and if the laborer changes the subject or answers incorrectly, the laborer is beheaded with a scythe or a pair of shears.
A superstition for an explanation of heatstroke, insanity or heat sickness, disregarding the decapitation.
Sometimes appearing as a 12-year-old girl, and an old woman, or a beautiful lady.
Also known as Pscipolnista, Poludnica, and Polednice.
