CHRISTMAS TRADITION FROM CATALONIA (SPAIN) :

From Girona, Spain, we’re proud to present you “the caganers”, a Catalan tradition representing famous people, politicians and fiction characters … with their trousers round their ankles and their bottoms bare !

Since it has appeared in the nativity scenes at the end of the 18th century, the caganer has been the most popular figure of Christmas in Catalonia, as a tradition or collector’s item. In only a few years, the image of the caganer has become a symbol, a reference and a curiosity of the Catalan culture.

Originally, the caganer is a figure which represents a Catalan peasant, dressed in the traditional red cap and belt, fertilizing the land with his crap. At Christmas every family hides a caganer in their nativity scene, behind a tree or a rock, next to Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus. It’s a source of amusement for the Catalans and is also a symbol of luck and prosperity for the forthcoming year.

Every year the Catalans look for the most amusing and unusual caganer, including politicians, sportsmen, actors, even characters from comics. They reflect our present society but in an unusual, scatological way. They don’t leave anybody indifferent and are quite a Christmas craze.

Casting Off My Womb by Casey Jenkins

In a provocative display that weds body politics and feminism with arts and crafts, Australia-based artist Casey Jenkins knitted a continuous, long scarf-like piece from a skein of wool she had inserted into her vagina.

The performance piece, cleverly called Casting Off My Womb, lasted for twenty eight days, which is the length of an average menstrual cycle. Every day at the beginning of the performance, Jenkins would insert a new skein of yarn into her vagina, spooled so that it would unravel from the center. The artist admits to occasionally becoming sexually aroused during the performance, which Aussie TV refers to as “vaginal knitting.”
