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.

Photographer Builds World’s Largest Camera

1171 Photographer Builds Worlds Largest Camera
A woman poses for her husband alongside a giant camera Thursday, November 7, 2013 outside the Historic Green County Courthouse in Monroe, Wis. Chicago photographer Dennis Manarchy created what’s being called the world’s largest camera. It’s 35-feet long and 12-feet tall it’s a working replica of a vintage accordion-style camera that produces 16- by 24-foot prints, the equivalent of a two-story building. The giant camera is on display in Monroe through November 17 because a Monroe company manufactured the specially-built trailer. Manarchy plans to tow the camera around the country to shoot photos of indigenous cultures. (Photo by Mark Hoffman)

Italian Restauranteur Spends 40 years Hand-building His Own Amusement Park

1165 Italian Restauranteur Spends 40 years Hand building His Own Amusement Park

An Italian has created his very own theme park – built in his spare time over 40 years in the woods near his restaurant. The restauranteur, known only as Bruno, has hand-built the amusement park filled with swings, seesaws, a ferris wheel and even a roller coaster, in Montello, northern Italy.

Bruno started in 1969 shortly after setting up grill restaurant Ai Pioppi in northern Italy. He was looking for hooks to join chairs together in his restaurant when a local welder suggest he do the work himself. Since then, as well as building his restaurant to seat 500 people, he has also built increasingly bigger rides as part of his nearby hand-made amusement park.

The amusement park now attracts hundreds of fun-loving visitors, including Oriol Ferrer Mesia, who took pictures and video of his recent visit.
