This is our Colombian nativity set. It was made in Ráquira, Boyacá.
Mary, Joseph, and the Shepherds have a unqie Colombian twist to their attire. They are dressed like Boyancenses -- complete with Ruanas and Sombrero.
Imagine their surprise when a shell shocked little boy would mumble something and then pee his pants. What was going on?
After several experiences, the family was sitting at a restaurant when the boy began mumbling something. The waiter, understanding what all Colombians understand, leaned over to the family and said, "He go toilet." Sure enough, the boy peed his pants.
What is it that the waiter knew that the family did not? Two simple words: "CHI CHI" Pronounced (chee-chee). These are the nearly universal words used by Colombian kids to let you know that they GOTTA GO!
If you want to know what they use for #2, typically either "PO PO" (Pronounced: poh poh) or "POPIS" (Pronounced: Poh pees).Hope this will help some of you avoid disasters in the future!
