The tradition dates back to the seventeenth century and is associated with a local legend. The story goes that a wealthy old woman will have made a donation to the church asking in return a paternoster to be prayed on her behalf, once a year. With that money, the people, on December 26 eat the nuts that are released from the bell tower of the Mother Church of Aldeia Viçosa to the churchyard and then roasted in the fire of Christmas.
