El Colacho - The Baby Jumping Festival

Known as El Colacho in Spain, the Baby-Jumping Festival is a popular event that takes place in Castillo de Murcia near Burgos, every year since 1620. It’s basically all about infants laying on a blanket and adults dressed as devils jumping over them a procession that’s supposed to cleanse the little ones of all evil doings. Doesn’t sound like it works, but hey who am to contradict tradition?

Just wondering if in history any of the devils tripped and fell over the poor babies!
