    Just came across this report about an ancient Spanish tradition in which the ‘devil’ (played by some local chap) leaps over a 1 year old baby in order to wash away its sins. Apparently there have never been any instances of babies being injured, but OMG!! I’d never let anyone do that with my baby!!

    Wow, that sounds bad enough but the photos have made me shiver all over! All those precious little babies! The leaping man looks quite manic – scary stuff!

    I’d be happy if my body was still able to jump that high – wouldn’t need the babies to make me feel good!
