e are mere days away from Christmas and excitement is at an all-time high. We love pretty much everything about the holiday — the hot cocoa, the twinkling lights, the popcorn garlands, and the pooping logs.
Yes, you read that right. We're talking about logs that poop!
There are so many holiday traditions that — while most of us are familiar with them — are a little weird when you actually start to think about them. Take stockings for instance.
People hang socks on their mantle and then eat candy out of them on Christmas morning. You probably don’t think that’s weird. But it kinda is.
Then there's the tradition of decorating a Christmas tree.
It’s a dead plant that you cover with lights and baubles and keep in your living room. Why? Because it’s tradition!
Speaking of dead plants, don't forget this one:
Mistletoe! Another dead plant you keep in your house. This one is specifically for kissing purposes.
So, yeah. There are plenty of Christmas traditions that seem a little odd when you really think about them. But none of these others have to do with pooping.
However, we recently learned about a Catalan Christmas tradition that does have to do with pooping. And we kind of love it.
It all starts with the Tió de Nadal or "Christmas Log."
The Tió de Nadal goes by another name, though. And that name is Caga Tió — literally, “sh*tting log.”
Here’s how it works.
