Early in the morning men and women born in Centelles, who are named 'Galejadors' wear their traditional costume with the Catalan red hat known as 'Barretina' and carry their shooting muskets as they walk into the forest to chop down a pine tree, load it on an ox cart and take it to the church in the village. There the pine tree is decorated with five bouquets of apples and wafers and hung inside a church until January 6. The tradition has been documented since 1751 and it is believed its origins are related to the trees and the pagan worship of fertilization related the winter solstice.
