A wishing well is a term from European folklore to describe a well who considered to have the ability to grant any wish.
The idea of a wish fulfilled comes from the idea that water sheltered deities, since it is a source of life and sometimes even a rare commodity.
Water is supposed to have healing powers. Some wells have even become known by people drinking water, bathing or simply making wishes.
In addition, some people believe that the keepers or inhabitants of the well would grant their wishes if they paid the price. After whispering the wish, one or more coins are usually thrown into the well. The caretaker or resident then makes this wish come true, depending on how the room would have landed at the bottom of the well. For example, throwing a coin into a well is usually lucky, although it depends on how it lands.
The tradition of throwing coins into ponds and fountains comes from there. Indeed, coins are given as gifts to the divinity to show fidelity.
