You forgot the part where they "feed" the log for a couple of weeks before Christmas :-D How's it going to shit anything without eating!!!
Good point! I also omitted where they stick his head in the fireplace to, uh, "encourage" him to shit what they want. Next time I'll do a fifty-panel comic chronicling every step of this wacky tradition
and we are so proud of it! ;)
You absolutely should be!
Catalonia is obsessed with crapping. We're talking about a part of the world where 'menja bé, caga fort i no tinguis por a la mort!' is a popular saying!
Don't forget about the caganer.
Look, there are only so many Catalonian defecating Christmas traditions I can deal with at one time, all right?
Lived there for a year, loved it (as much as your comics) and totally agree: They are OBSESSED with shitting
Good to know it's not just me...
Been showing this to some of my Catalan friends, and they love it. :)And the whole Christmas pooing thing is weird... yet funny; how could you forget the caganer?!
