Caganer bob

Traditionally styled “caganer” ceramic figurines of cartoon character Sponge Bob Square pants were pictured recently.

Statuettes of well-known people defecating (Caganer) are a strong Christmas tradition in Catalonia, dating back to the 18th century as Catalonians hide caganers in Christmas Nativity scenes and invite friends to find them.

The figures symbolise fertilisation, hope and prosperity for the coming year.
