The Catalan people have a Tio de Nadal in their house at Christmas. It is a log. They feed it, then beat it with sticks on Christmas day until it poos presents!

    Here's a typical song that the children sing when they beat the log on Christmas day;

    caga tió,
    tió de Nadal,
    no caguis arengades,
    que són massa salades
    caga torrons
    que són més bons!


    And a rough translation...

    poo log,
    Christmas log
    don't poo herrings,
    which are too salty,
    poo nougat
    which is much better!
