21 Completely Insane Festivals from Around the World

El Colacho in Castillo de Murcia, Spain

El Colacho, also known as the baby jumping festival, has occurred each year on the feast of Corpus Christi since 1620. Any baby under a year old can be swaddled and placed on a mattress with other newborns to have full-grown men dressed as devils take turns leaping over them. This is supposed to be a blessing: it cleanses the babies of evil and guards them against illness.
