Barcelona Christmas at Grácia City Hostel is a truly special time.

Is a Caga Tio, a wooden log with a smiley face painted onto one end.Caga Tio also wears a traditional Catalan red hat and is basically the Catalan equivalent of Santa Clause.

The idea is that Caga Tio is “looked after” by the kids from the 8th of December to Christmas Eve. They cover him to keep him warm and feed him every evening. The more they feed him, the more Christmas presents he will “poo-out” for Christmas.
