CHRISTMAS DAY AND CAGA TIÓ
At Christmas the family decorates the house with lights. On Christmas Eve the children leave milk and cookies next to the Christmas tree, before Santa Claus comes to leave gifts. Santa Claus enters the houses through the chimney and leaves presents under the tree. On 25th December in the morning the children find the gifts under the tree and the family gathers for a special lunch sometimes at a restaurant. This text was written by:

One week before Christmas Day, the children give cookies, oranges and bread to a ‘magic’ log called ‘tió’. When children get up next morning, the ‘tió’ ate all the food.
â€˘ On Christmas Day, children hit the log with a stick and sing a song.
The ‘ caga tió’ is traditional in Catalunya.
