Celebrate with the Casal Catala de Washington DC some of the well know Catalan Christmas traditions: Els Pastorets and the Caga Tió.
Els Pastorets will entertain you with the vicissitudes of Lluc and Rovelló, two shepherds who get involved with the powers of good and bad, while on their way to admire Jesus, the new-born. Afterwards the children will have the chance to get candies from the Tió de Nadal or Caga Tió, the log that gives presents or excretes them, while being hit with a stick. We will round up our get together with some Catalan carols and a Christmas toast with cava remembering all the activities that we shared this year 2012 that is about to end.
