    Today, in Spain, it is the Day of the 'Santos Inocentes' and commemorates Herod's killing of all young males in the town of Bethlehem to avoid losing his throne to a new king as predicted by the Magi (Matthew 2:16-18). Strangely, it is the equivalent of our April Fools' day and has the same consequences - practical jokes.
