I lived in Spain for two Navidades, and never once saw one of these. I feel now, that my two years were completely wasted on cork trees, manchego, and cocido.

Did you like my Caga Tió? A man from San Francisco bought it last year!. Because of you I ‘ve had more visits in a day than during all the blog’s life! Thank you!

Ohh no.. El caga tio.. Is a Tradition, that to me, looks like really talking a lot of the Catalans and how are they..
I have 3 years living in Barna and for sure, seeing the kids (and family) all together watching like they “kill” the poor little Caga tio to get gifts, is still a surprise, and a sadness… But still: they dont kill no one else.. Thats nice..
