You know, I actually read an article about this tradition today, the "Caganer", and I thought about you. :D
Strangest christmas tradition I've ever heard of. :lol:

If you'd like, I wouldn't mind hearing more about "Tio de Nadal" as well, which sounded like something in the similar...um...end. :wink:

Brings a whole new meaning to that old Australian phrase, to "Bash the shit out of it." Image
