The day after christmas.
The little guy at the left is a “tió”. He is the one that brings presents to the catalan children.
Well, actually he “shits” the presents and sweets…
He is a magical log. Normally is just a piece ofe wood with a painted face, a hat and a scarf, but mine got this cute papier mache face (it is a puppet, in fact, not a “real” log)
Children keep him warm and feed him during the advent time. On christmas eve, they hit the poor guy with sticks and sing songs. Then, the “tió” defecates the christmas sweets and presents.
Yes, I know. We are a very scatological people…but it’s fun, anyway.
Merry christmas, and happy new year…
