CAGANDO


Mud figures of Spain's Crown Prince Felipe, his daughter Leonor and Princess Letizia, known as 'caganer' or defecator in Catalan, are sold at the Santa Llucia Market, a Christmas market, in central Barcelona, December 14, 2005. Catalans create Christmas Nativity scenes using models and hide the figures in them before inviting friends to find the figures. Catalans believe the 'caganer', by creating faeces, fertiliser the earth, bringing prosperity and luck for the coming year. [Reuters]
