All I want for Christmas is a log that poops

File this under strange Christmas traditions. In Catalunya (the region of Spain that includes Barcelona), a log named 'Caga Tío' appears in homes early December. Children are told to feed the log scraps in the coming days, and cover it with a blanket to keep it warm. On Christmas Eve they beat the log with a stick and sing a song, then pull back the blanket to reveal that the log has 'pooped' sweets or toys. And no one seems to know how this tradition got started.
