Rockville. Several dozen families gathered in a party room for another holiday ritual: children whacking the gifts out of a caga tio, the Catalan pooping log. The caga tio is a hollowed log, sometimes real and sometimes papier-mache, with a happy face painted on one end. Grown-ups “feed” the log small packages packages before the ceremony, and then the kids descend with glee, pounding it until the gifts are, uh, delivered from the other end.
