About the Caga Tió tradition
The Tió de Nadal is a Catalan tradition with hundreds of years of history. It became popular between the 17th and 18th centuries in the towns and villages of Catalonia, Aragon, and Occitanie. Many families, after having the log “poop” gifts, would burn it in their fireplaces to warm up in the company of loved ones during Christmas.
Years have passed since the first Christmas log appeared, but the tradition of the Tió de Nadal is more alive than ever in Catalonia.
How does the tradition work?
- Each household acquires a Tió de Nadal before Christmas.
- Kids feed the Tió de Nadal throughout December with fruit, milk, cookies, and all kinds of foods. This way, the log will have a full belly, and it will “poop” many presents on Christmas Eve.
- Families and friends gather on Christmas Eve.
- The children congregate in a room, reciting poems and singing songs, while the Tió de Nadal prepares to “poop” gifts. The Christmas log should be covered with a blanket.
- Next, the whole family “hit” the log with sticks while singing the “Cagatió” song.
- Surprise! The children’s wishes have come true. Underneath the blanket, there are presents and sweets. The Tió de Nadal has “pooped” out gifts for the kids in the house!
