A Catalan Christmas 2013 in WDC [RSVP please]

Let’s Celebrate Christmas with the Casal Catala de Washington DC  and the two most cherished Catalan traditions: Els Pastorets and the Caga Tió.

Pastorets 1Els Pastorets
will entertain you with the adventures of Lluquet and Rovelló, two shepherds from a Catalan masia that by magic powers find themselves in a forest near Bethlem on their way to admire Jesus, the new-born. In their journey they will meet iconic characters from our cherished Nativity scene, and get involved with the powers of good and bad.

Afterwards the children will have the chance to get presents from the 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 2013 that is about to end.
