October 25th is the Feast Day of the Madonna of Leaves, a figure seen multiple times over the years in various forests. She is described as a hooded/robed figure who leaves maple leaves behind her instead of footprints.
Several witnesses claim that she healed them of chronic pain and illness. On one occasion she appeared to a farmer and left behind the flea-repelling plant Feverfew, a season before the area was struck by plague.
Sightings were common in the forties and fifties, but have tapered off. The Madonna of Leaves is rarely seen today.
