SEVENTEENTH


From 8th December here in Barcelona there is a interesting & different christmas tradition apart from the caganer I had mentioned to you last year.
Children (and adults!) look after a Tió de Nadal or Caga Tió. This hollow log, often with a smiley face is cared for until Christmas Eve or Christmas Day when it is then brutally beaten or thrown on the fire while children sing to it asking for presents to appear!
