Jump Over The Baby

The adults carried out a jump over the baby ceremony in a village of Spain, Castrillo de Murcia. The ceremony was a yearly ritual that celebrate to expel the devils.

The participants put on a clothes as the Colacho, that reflected the devil, and jump over the babies who lay on cloth.

There was a few baby that apparently watch in confuse the men who jump over, but there are those that appear not to care and continue enjoying their pacifier.

Like usual, none was hurt, both the baby and the jumper in this yearly ritual.
