I Love Lloret de mar Christmas Caga tió
I Love Lloret de mar especially over the Christmas holidays
El Caga tió the Catalan Christmas log:
A hollowed out log complete with bark the wood has stick legs, a happy painted face and usually a local barretina hat, from the feast of the Immaculate Conception (8th December) until christmas eve or christmas day (depending on the family) the Caga tió is fed and kept warm.
Then comes the big day.. the log is beaten with a stick until it 'poops' out small gifts usually of fruit and nuts.
