Baby Jumping!

General Baby jumping Info:Baby_jumping.png

Baby jumping takes place annually during June, in Castrillo de Murcia, Spain.

The festival is a traditional Spanish practice that is dated all the way back to 1620, and has been rated as one of the most dangerous in the world! It is also known as El Colacho. It is a part of festivals held all over Spain for the Catholic festival of Corpus Christi.

Anyone who hasn't gone through this festival is looking over their shoulder for evil, or illness to strike. Since they were not rid of evil as a baby, they can participate in an exercise of jumping through a ring of fire on the 21st of December in Granada.
