The Tio de Nadal (Christ­mas log) or Caga Tio (Poop­ing Log) is a fes­tive tra­di­tion in Cat­alo­nia, Spain. This hol­low log with a smil­ing face will have been “fed” nuts, sweets and dried fruit all De­cem­ber and cov­ered with a blan­ket to keep him warm. Then on Christ­mas Eve he is wal­loped un­til he poops out all his treats. He is even sung to while be­ing beaten to en­sure all treats are ex­pelled.
