Carlos’ Countdown ‘Til Christmas (19)

19 days until Christmas. The countdown continues.

Sometimes I wish I lived in Catalonia, the little autonomous community in Spain where they celebrate Tió de Nadal. How does relate to Christmas you might be thinking? Simple, I’ll tell you—

Better yet. Allow this song —which you are meant to sing during the “event”—to paint the picture.

“Shit log,
shit nougats,
hazelnuts and cottage cheese,
if you don't shit well,
I'll hit you with a stick,
shit log!”

So, beat the shit—literally—out of a piece of anthropomorphised wood? Yeah sure, why not?
