Tions de Nadal

 

The "Tió de nadal" is one of the most touching characters of Catalan Christmas. It brings small gifts and candies to the children in Christmas eve or in Christmas day.

During the days before Christmas children feeds the Tió in abundance. The Christmas day they ask it to "shit", or drop them gifts and candies by singing a song and beating it with sticks.
