As most of the events that involve family reunion it is based on food. This is the reason why we pass the previous day to Christmas at the kitchen.

When we have almost everything ready for the following day it is nearly dinner time. Then, we meet with family or friends to share the meal all together.

Once we have finished eating torró (a Christmas sweet similar to marzipan or nougat, made with almonds and honey) and borraines (a native plant that we batter), it is the Tió’s moment. Now that we are full of energy, we do the Tió’s ritual to get our presents.
