El Colacho Festival

Since 1620, the Spanish locals of Castrillo de Murcia have been observing a dangerous practice that puts babies into the brink of fatality.

The annual festival of "Baby-Jumping Colacho", a part of Corpus Christi celebrations, lets "El Colacho", an incarnate representation of evil, jump over the innocent infants in an attempt to cleanse their souls of evil. All with full parental consent!

The origin of such event remains vague though.

Grown-ups have been acting childish. I see.
