... and the "Home dels Nassos" is a great story. Nice that the City Council remembers him :-)

Wishing you both a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

For me, it's both a sad time as well as a happy one. This forum lost its greatest Barcelona fan right after Christmas.

Chris-the-Scotsman is always loved, always missed and never forgotten.

I love how the caganer is described as "the curious crouching figure, one of the most popular features of Catalan Nativity scenes."

Haha, guess what, crouching is not the only thing he does. ;)

ha ha ... 'squatting' might have been a bit more descriptive. I have a Hello Kitty caganer that I bought from a store on La Rambla. The poo is pink.
