The Leave’s Wonder

Bodea Iulia

Once upon a time there was a king and queen who had a daughter and a son. The princess was 18 and the prince 20.
The prince couldn’t find the symbol which could make the princess not to think that he was proud that he was older than the princess.
One morning they went for a walk and they passed a lemon dry tree with leaves of all colors. The prince took some leaves. They went back to the castle.
The prince tried to make that symbol. He took some beads and he stuck two beads on each leaf. Each scarlet leaf he pressed. After a couple of days he looked at the leaves. Then a miracle happened. One leaf changed into white and beads into red.
The prince gave that leaf to the princess at the end of winter. He gave her the symbol of spring.
This custom goes back for centuries.
