There’s a New Way to Count Down to Christmas this Holiday Season:
The Christmas Poop Log Story Book & Activity Set is the latest trend to mark the approaching end of December and makes a perfect early holiday gift. From a long line of advent calendar-type favorites from The Elf on a Shelf and The Mensch on a Bench to daily chocolates and wine by several high-profile luxury brands, The Christmas Poop Log is a fun and educational cultural experience that centers around a tradition celebrated in the Catalonia region in Northern Spain with roots in the 18th century.
The practice of finding the perfect poop log in the wilderness reflects the American tradition of finding the perfect tree. Once the one that’s ‘just right’ is found near the 8th of December, it is brought into the home and accessorized by its new family with an illustrated face, felt hat and other festive attire and propped on smaller logs as front “legs.” A cozy blanket is then laid on “Caga Tió,” as it is affectionately called.
Every day, family members “feed” Caga Tió with fruits and nuts until December 24th. It is then that Caga Tió is tapped with sticks while the family sings a corresponding song asking it to “poop” presents!
The Christmas Poop Log: A Christmas Tradition Story Book and Activity Set complete with wooden log and dowels, Santa hat, felt blanket, paint set, glue, and googly eyes is available for $39.95 on www.thechristmaspooplog.com, making it a great gift for kids and families, gag, white elephant, or Pollyanna exchanges, crafters, and anyone who loves a laugh. The story book is also available on Amazon now for an affordable $15.95. The beautiful, color illustrated thirty-one-page paperback has already attracted the attention of many and has received rave reviews since its publishing date in April 2021.
After traveling to Spain several years ago and becoming fascinated by the tradition, entrepreneur and first-time author Jonathan Chastek created the book and activity set to bring the endearing tradition to American families in an accessible way by selling the logs as a ready-to-assemble complete kit versus collecting the log outdoors.
“Because the tradition is rooted in nature, a tree will be planted for every purchase through our partnership with OneTreePlanted,” says Chastek, “I very much want to keep sustainability and love for our planet at the forefront of our mission.”
He continues, “It’s my hope that this fun, cultural tradition will be embraced by many this season. The activity set, with the book included to tell the story, is a great way to bring holiday cheer and laughter.”
He hopes that Caga Tió will become a part of every family’s holiday traditions. Once created, the log can be stowed away with holiday décor and embraced for years to come.
The tradition has recently been adopted by families and celebrities alike who appreciate its silliness and fun factor including famed former Saturday Night Live Star, Comedian and Actor, Kate McKinnon.
