OddlyEnough: Baby Jumping Festival of Spain
Want to protect your baby from illness?
Sign him/her up for the Baby Jumping Festival of Castrillo de Murcia, which takes place every year in northern Spain.
Since 1620 the town puts rows of babies on a small mattress and then has grown men dress up like the devil (or el Diablo) and jump over the helpless babies.
As of yet, no babies have been harmed!
Until someone trips and falls on the babies, then more likely town mothers will think twice about having an idiot in a costume jump over their baby.
