El Tío de Nadal
, better known as Caga Tío, is a Catalan Christmas tradition.On Christmas day or, depending on the particular household, on Christmas eve, you put the ‘tió’ partly into the fireplace and order it to “poo”. To make him “poo”, you beat him with sticks, while singing various songs of Tió de Nadal.
avellanes i mató,
si no cagues bé
et daré un cop de bastó.
hazelnuts and cottage cheese,
if you don't poop well,
I'll hit you with a stick,
of Caga Tio
Also, don't forget the other fecally festive Catalan holiday tradition, the Caganer
