6/15/2004: El Colacho jumps the babies
Troubleshooter Tuesday Jun 15 01:40 PM
If you're willing to heed the little voices, why is this such a leap of logic?

at least he got new shoes since his last jump.

Whaddayu mean? The kids aren't in danger, the guy's obviously way off to the side.

4 at a time! Must take all day. Maybe they keep adding more. A bigger bed, better shoes, longer run up, flashier costume....

If we're done ridiculing what we don't understand, maybe we can dig a little deeper. We have some cultural confusion here. From what I've read the devil is supposed to be fleeing from the sight of the Eucharist, since it occurs the Sunday after Corpus Christi. Original sin is removed by Baptism in Catholicism. El Colacho is supposed to flee taking with him whatever illnessess the babies have. It is a traditional folk remedy dating from 1621.

A friend of mine says that, "El Salto Del Colacho" means, "the jump of the curly haired guy."

I'd say American culture's irrationality is far more dangerous to humanity than some curly haired guy maintaining an old tradition for the sake of tourism.
