  • Catalonian nativity scenes traditionally include El Caganer, a figure of a guy pooping with his pants down.

  • Another Catalonian Christmas tradition is Tió de Nadal, the Christmast Log. This is a small log with a happy face and a red hat, propped up on legs. In the run-up to Christmas, the kids feed the log daily, and then on Christmas Day it magically poops out nougats, hazelnuts, or other plausible log poop objects such as dried figs.

  • To make Tió de Nadal defecate, one puts its end into the fireplace, or, if no fireplace is available, beats it with sticks.

  • Tió (“trunk”) should not be confused with tío (“uncle”).
