019 - Captain Santa and the Christmas Tree Ship / The Caganer and Caga Tió
Play • 30 min

Double stories this week for Christmas! The first story is historical about Captain Santa and the Christmas Tree Ship on the waters of Lake Michigan making a late season run in a big storm. Check out the photo of the shipwreck on our FB page, Twitter or Instagram.

The second story is from Catalan culture about the Caganer, the mysterious figure in the back of nativity scenes...who appears to be taking a poop. Then my favorite, Caga Tió, the Christmas log or pooping log. You must take good care of your log and feed it good things so that it will poop out treats and gifts for you on Christmas. I'll be sharing several photos of the log and a video from our trip to Spain where I got to meet (and beat) the big one!

Song: Pooping Log (Caga Tió) ft. Norah Jones from Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations Holiday Special 2011
