Catalan Christmas

Catalan Christmas Traditions.....

First I will describe the caganer - "the shitting sheppard" a fun Catalan addition to the typical Christmas creche figurine family. The traditional caganer is an old sheppard with a barretina (typical catalan red hat)( barretina) and espardenyes (canvas Shoes) sttopping on the way to visit the new Born Jesus and taking a dump. (Its a Natural thing)

You can find Caganers all over Catalunya Christmas Markets and there isn't a pessebre(manger) that doesn't have one Caganer.
The "caganer" symbolize the earth fertility, it means prosperity for the new year.


Caga Tio (shitting log)


Fifteen days before Christmas, caga tio makes his appearance in the dining room, where he must be fed at least once every day. He likes oranges, crackers and sweet wine. In some families, caga tio starts small, but grows as the days progress toward Christmas.
At some point, caga tio is moved out of the dining room, into the living room, and covered with a blanket to keep him warm. On Christmas Eve, before the traditional Christmas dinner, the kids are sent to their rooms to say three Our Fathers, which gives the elders enough time to stash presents under caga tio's blanket. After their prayers are done, the kids return to the living room and start beating the hell out of poor caga tio with big sticks. And they sing a song. One version goes Tio, tio, Caga Turro" "Shit, log, shit! If you don't shit well, we will whack you again!" Si no cagues tio un cop de basto" Another goes "Log, log, shit candy! If you don't shit for Christmas, we will whack you once more!"


After the children have gotten their fill of flogging the log, the blanket is removed to determine caga tio's state of digestion. Typically, a miracle has occurred, and the log has pooped wrapped gifts... and everyone is happy!!!Caga Tio

Bon Nadal Merry Christmas

Lots of Love BU

Volver... tornar...

No para de llover
y quiero volver
estoy harta de conducir sola
y pensar y pensar
quiero ver el mar
las puestas de sol
y que el frio sea frio
y los hombres de verdad
el aburrimiento me mata
y la soledad nunca se va
ni de vacaciones
lo mismo que las decepciones
y aunque intento ocultarlo
me canse de esperar
y no puedo negarlo
mi corazon esta en otro lugar
quiero volver
No para de ploure
i vull tornar
farta de conduir sola
pensant i pensant
vull veure el mar
i postes de sol
que el fred sigui fred
l'aborriment m'esta matant
i la soletat mai marxa
de vacances el mateix passa
amb la decepcio,
tot i que intento amagar-ho
m'he cansat d'esperar
i no puc negar-ho
el meu cor esta a un altre lloc
i vull tornar.

un ninu em va dir que si somniava

i volia molt una cosa al final l'aconseguiria...

jo sempre he pensat que els somnis no es poden

explicar... perque llavors no es compleixen...

totes les estrelles caigudes del cel tenen el mateix

desig i una vegada l'estrella va caure sobre nostre.

no saps com cada dia desitjo que es compleixi...

mi cancion mexicana...



 
 

Immaculada 2007 35 sants

Virgen inocente, sin mancha, santa de alma y cuerpo, nacida como lirio entre espinas». «María aventaja en pureza a los serafines y querubines». «Si el Hijo de Dios hubiera encontrado en María una mancha, un defecto cualquiera, sin duda se escogiera una madre exenta de toda inmundicia».«Justicia jamás rota».

«Oh, incontaminada de toda mancha». como te hallase a Ti sola purísima de toda mancha, o totalmente inmune de pecado, engendrado de tus entrañas, limpia de pecados a los creyentes».

«Santa, inmaculada de alma y cuerpo, libre totalmente de todo contagio».

«En este paraíso no tuvo entrada la serpiente, por cuyas ansias de falsa divinidad hemos sido asemejados a las bestias».

7 roses Upside down...I don't want this feeling to go away.

I'll share this love I find with everyone


Who's to say
What's impossible
Well they forgot
This world keeps spinning
And with each new day
I can feel a change in everything
And as the surface breaks reflections fade
But in some ways they remain the same
And as my mind begins to spread its wings
There's no stopping curiosity

I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I'll find the things they say just can't be found
I'll share this love I find with everyone
We'll sing and dance to Mother Nature's songs
I don't want this feeling to go away

Who's to say
I can't do everything
Well I can try
And as I roll along I begin to find
Things aren't always just what they seem

I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I'll find the things they say just can't be found
I'll share this love I find with everyone
We'll sing and dance to Mother Nature's songs
This world keeps spinning and there's no time to waste
Well it all keeps spinning spinning round and round and

Upside down
Who's to say what's impossible and can't be found
I don't want this feeling to go away

Please don't go away
Please don't go away
Please don't go away
Is this how it's supposed to be
Is this how it's supposed to be
