Obviously These Children Cannot Jump

Grown men have been leaping over rows of babies in the north Spanish village of Castrillo de Murcia in an annual rite meant to “ward off the Devil.”

Jumpers dressed as the Colacho, a character representing the Devil, bounded over clusters of bemused infants laid out on mattresses.

Nobody appeared to get hurt in this year’s festive event.

Castrillo, near Burgos, has been holding the event since 1620 to mark the Catholic feast of Corpus Christi.
