CHRISTMAS CUSTOMS

 

Spain

Hello from Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain! Merry Christmas and a Happy new Year 2001 from the class Year 8. Here is a Catalan tradition about Cristmas Eve

CAGATIÓ.

I'm going to talk to you about "CAGATIÓ". It's a Catalan tradition. It's celebrated on December 24th, Christmas Eve.
People buy a log and they cover it with a hat and a blanket: Little children hit it with a stick so that they can get some sweets, chocolate and presents. But they don't get anything if they don't sing this song:
"Cagatió, avellana i turró, si no cagues per mi, caga pel meu padrí."
