In the olden times, this song was quite popular. In Urdiain, groups of women walked to the wheat fields at midnight on Saint John’s Eve and proclaimed: “Orain arte belar, hemendik aurrera gari!” (Grass until now, wheat from now on!). Previous to that they stood in a circle and sang this song in the small square by Saint John’s hermitage. Likewise, the song used to be sung at bonfires.
