The Caganers I Want For Christmas

I have to admit, living far away from Cataluña as I do, that I hadn't come across the concept of the caganer until I saw this article in El País. Now I'm sold on the idea and the fact that these particular models are going to be on sale this year in Madrid means that I already have a Christmas present sorted out...for myself.

About ten years ago I was on an internet forum with some Americans. I told them about caganers. They were surprised, and some just couldn't handle it.

I always thought that the idea was to introduce an element of down-to-earth peasant reality into the Belén.

Hell, Graeme. I was going to send you a pair . . .

Feel free Colin, in my household it's always useful to have a replacement set for everything. It'll help compensate for that festive hamper of percebes that I was going to send to you ;)
