el día de los (Santos) Inocentes April Fools' Day; All Fools' Day
28 December, el día de los (Santos) Inocentes, is when the Catholic Church in Spain commemorates the New Testament story of King Herod's slaughter of the innocent children of Judaea. On this day Spaniards play practical jokes or inocentadas on each other, much as we do on April Fools' Day. A typical example is sticking a monigote, a cut-out paper figure, on someone's back. Whenever someone falls for a trick, the practical joker cries out "¡Inocente"
