The branch

On New Year’s Eve my grandmother’s mother always woke up in the morning and went to the forest to cut a holly branch. During the day she would go to the barn and take the branch and press it so that all its leaves would fall. The purpose was to empty all the leaves before the shepherd came and saw her. The reason was to get a bigger crop and have food for their animals.
