- Young Spanish children find a hollow log and stand it up on two legs, paint a face, stick on a nose and top with a barretina or a red sock hat.
- Starting on December 8th, the log should be "fed" every night until Christmas Day when it is appropriately, thrown in the fireplace.
- While cute little Caga Tio is being burnt to a crisp, children should beat the log with a stick, demanding it to poop.
- Well let me tell you, this poop happens to be candies, nuts, dry figs, and turrones (almond nougat)
- When the log is done "producing" candy, it poops out a clove of garlic.
This tradition sure is something.
