Holy Innocents’ Day

Here is a quotation from the Don Quijote language school website explaining the pranks played on 28th December, so get out the scissors and cut out your paper people!


“The most traditional joke is to put a puppet or ragdoll on people’s backs. Another tradition is a television program in which celebrities from film and television are made the butt of jokes, with the purpose of raising money for a good cause. The Día de los Santos Inocentes is therefore Spain’s equivalent of April Fool’s Day, as ‘inocentadas’ in Spanish also means ‘prank’ as well as ‘innocent’.”
