Scrabble Bingo of the Day: * CAGANER [n]
A caganer is a small figurine of a person defecating in place, pants humorously around the character's ankles. It's a traditional Christmas decoration in Catalonia, Spain and in neighboring areas, where it's placed within the nativity scene.
In the United States, the traditional nativity scene depicts Mary and Joseph looking after the infant Jesus in His manger, with other possible bystanders being shepherds, the Magi, and possibly even angels. Catalan nativity decorations usually consist of the entire city of Bethlehem, in addition to just the manger scene.
The squatting caganer is usually hidden in the miniature city away from Jesus, providing a fun activity for children who try and find it.
