Shhhh! Don’t Wake The Babies

A successful baby jump in action! Yeah, you heard me. Baby Jumping (El Colacho) is a real thing in Spain. During the Catholic feast of Corpus Christi men dressed as the Devil jump over babies born in the past year. This ritual, which has been around since the 1600s, is supposed to cleanse the babies of original sin and protect them from evil spirits. This sounds like a prospective Olympic sport to me.
