Today I learned a new word: caganer:
a figurine depicted in the act of defecation appearing in nativity scenes in Catalonia and neighboring areas with Catalan culture such as Andorra, Valencia, Northern Catalonia (in southern France) and the Balearic Islands. It is most popular in these areas, but can also be found in other areas of Spain (Murcia), Portugal and southern Italy (Naples).
Add your favorite celebrity caganer to your nativity scene today! Mine is Ms. Palin.
