The production of the crib is changed from year to year. In recent years, both traditional and contemporary styles are applied, but always with the familiar characters of the Holy Family, shepherds, Three Kings and angels,…You also can see the caganer, an elf or a gnome-like figurine who will be found in the scene, crouching down to defecate. It is quite a strange and unique tradition in Catalonia. This tradition means that the caganer drops his britches to “fertilize the Earth”. The fellow is believed to bring good luck.
