Baby Jumping Festival: A man dressed up as the devil jumps over babies lying on a mattress in the street during 'El Colacho', the 'baby jumping festival' in the village of Castrillo de Murcia, near Burgos. Baby jumping (El Colacho) is a traditional Spanish practice dating back to 1620 that takes place annually to celebrate the Catholic feast of Corpus Christi. During the act - known as El Salto del Colacho (the devil's jump) or simply El Colacho - men dressed as the Devil jump over babies born in the last twelve months of the year who lie on mattresses in the street.
