    NEED help sleeping? Instead of counting sheep, head over to Spain and watch a grown man dressed as a deil leap over helpless babies!

    Although it sounds more like a nightmare, the ritual is part of the annual Catholic festival Corpus Christi, which has been celebrated all over Spain since 1620.

    Known to the locals as El Colacho, the event marks the feast of Corpus Christi and sees an incarnate devil jump over children to rid them of evil.
    The festival also features processions, mystery plays and the whippings.

    Throughout the celebrations, the shadowy brotherhood of Santísimo Sacramento de Minerva – the people responsible for organising the celebrations – chase and terrorise the township with whips at regular intervals throughout the day.
