SPAIN-CAGANER-POPE

Dezembro 23rd, 2012

(L to R) Ceramic figurines of Pope Benedict XVI called caganers are pictured on November 17, 2010. Statuettes of well-known people defecating are a strong Christmas tradition in Catalonia, dating back to the 18th century as Catalonians hide caganers in Christmas Nativity scenes and invite friends to find them. The figures symbolize fertilization, hope and prosperity for the coming year. AFP PHOTO/LLUIS GENE
