Dec. 10th 2016 – A Catalan Christmas in Washington DC

Once again the Catalan tradition of Els Pastorets and Caga Tio returns to Washington

Casal Catala Washington DC is pleased to invite you to the 4th edition of the cherished Catalan traditions of Els Pastorets and Caga Tió

untitledEls 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.

untitled2Afterwards 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.
