El Caganer


“In Catalonia, as well as in the rest of Spain and in most of Italy and Southern France, the traditional Christmas decoration is a large model of the city of Bethlehem.
The Catalans have added an extra character known as the Caganer, often tucked away where he is not easily noticed.
“Caganer” translates from Catalan to English as “pooper”, and that is exactly what this little statue is doing: taking a poo.”.
