The Catalonian Caganer is one of the world's most unique Christmas Traditions. Also known as “the pooping shepherd,” the Caganer is an earthy figure, depicted as he is engaged in the most mundane of human tasks. Caganers are traditionally tucked away in the back of Catalan nativity scenes, and finding them is a favorite pastime of children.
