The three kings ask the old woman to join them in their search for the Christ child, but she declines because her day's work is not done. In vain, she tries to follow them the next day, but has continued to search in vain.

An old woman who was too busy to travel with the Wise Men to find the Child now searches endlessly for Him each Christmas season.
