if I was a mother that would make my heart leap out of my chest. if anything went wrong, it would be the mother`s (and of course jumping dude`s) fault for even volunteering, tradition or not.

Local mothers place their babies on mattresses on the town’s streets and wait for the devil to leap over the little ones on his mad dash out of town. When the devil makes his leap, it’s said that his action protects the children from evil. This, coupled with a special blessing from the priest, m

I saw this on tv. If i remember right, it is a celebration, and that guy is supposed to represent the devil, and is also supposed to go and jump over babys that parents willingly put down on blankets.

It`s a Spanish ritual to protect babies from the Devil. Mothers volunteer their children because they will be blessed for life and they know this guy is a really good jumper.

That`s just reckless. Don`t matter how good someone claims to be, you simply don`t risk your children.
