This special episode with the Toons is a special gift from FC Barcelona to its supporters in China, and is our way of celebrating the event with them.
Chinese New Year takes place next week, on February 10, the same day that Barça have a Liga fixture at home to Getafe. The game kicks off at 12.00 noon CET, which gives supporters in the Far East the rare opportunity to watch a Barça game kick off in what will be the evening in that part of the world.
In China, the game is going out live on public channel CCTV-5 and on the Tencent Sport website, so Chinese supporters will be able to celebrate New Year while enjoying FCB live on television! The club is working on a number of ideas to promote the match in China and providing especially extensive coverage on the Chinese section of the club website (www.fcbarcelona.cn) and also on the most important social networking site in the country, Tencent Weibo (t.qq.com/fcbarcelona).

The animated players are the stars of a story that explains some of the most ancient traditions celebrated by Catalans during the festive season
Christmas is becoming a more and more universal event, but it is celebrated differently in every part of the world. Households in Catalonia enjoy some especially ancient traditions.
To celebrate Christmas 2012, FC Barcelona has put together a new story featuring the Barça Toons, in which they explain some of these traditions in a fun way.
In this story, the Toons become the shepherds in an improvised nativity scene, a tradition that goes back to medieval times of using figurines to represent the birth of Jesus Christ in Palestine. Each player acts as a shepherd in the scene where the star announces the birth of the new messiah.
The Three Kings also appear, who are also important figures in any nativity scene. Every Christmas, Catalan families fill their houses with festive decorations. These include the nativity scene, a tradition that goes beyond its religious meanings to become a tradition in every sense, regardless of beliefs.
On Christmas Eve, Catalan children make what is called a ‘cagatió’, a tree trunk that contains their presents. In this special episode of the Barça Toons, some very peculiar Catalan traditions are explained in a simple and fun way.

In addition to Halloween, Catalonia celebrates the autumn season on October 31 with the Castanyada holiday.
