A log which, when burned, gave precious goods such as heat and light, and symbolically offered to present the house: candy, wafers, nougat. We can still find, in the villages, houses in which the "uncle" is a large trunk which is set to burn in the fire of earth a few days before Christmas. From this primitive form "Uncle" evolves: "Uncle" is a magical trunk one day closer to Christmas Eve, December 24, comes home knocking on the door. Anyone at home opens and you have to take care, cover her with a blanket to get cold and feed to the 24 at night time when "the shit man." Subsequently, as in the cities people had it harder to buy a trunk, and because all you can do business, began to sell "tions". All are sold more or less the same: they usually wear a beret, with a smiling face and very often also two front legs. Originally, none were the same because it was just a large log to an adult to paint a face as I wanted.
