Where do I start?… hahaha. It is a tradition in Catalonia to put el caganer in our Nativity scenes.
It is a Christmas pooper figurine, yes you read that right: a figurine which is in a pooping position.
The famous one is the one with barretina (typical Catalan red hat) and dressed with a white shirt, black trousers and a red faixa (Catalan kind of belt, also used by castellers), as a Catalan peasant.
However, there are plenty of caganers figurines that impersonate famous people as actors, politicians, sports players, anyone you can imagine I’m sure there is a caganer out there of them.
Have you ever heard about caganers? Let me know in the comments below! 🙂
