What am I catching?

Today is Catch Your 12 Leaves Day

The tradition (my tradition, anyway) is to try to catch 12 leaves before they reach the ground.  This will give you good luck in the coming 12 months.

But it is not as easy as it sounds.

It helps to find a big tree with a lot of big leaves that are just ready to let go.  It also helps if it is a windy day.  It helps most of all if you are really agile!
