The Dreads of Dieng Legend

4 times already visit this legendary Dieng Plateau, but the last one all i want to know more is about Dreads Children.
Talk about this Dreads is about history and religious view. As you know there are some Hindust Temple in Dieng and some Hindu religious. Hindu is in Dieng is not exactly the same with in Bali.
By both (history and Religious view) the dreads children have magic power and other soul alive on their body. we can say that they are holy children, but still they are active and act as normaly children perform, only their hairs grow on dread naturally.
In one moment, there will be celebration of cutting the dreads and it is called RUWATAN.
For each dreads children will have one wishes to be fulfilled on that Ruwatan.
when i wanted to met one of them in Dieng, that was after Big Ruwatan held on Dieng. Wasn't easy for me to met the children because almost of them were already cut.
With so many asking to some villagers finally i found one and talked to her, and it is so good! unbelievable to touch and see the hair.
