What is Dia de Los Inocentes?

Día de Los Inocentes, also known as Day of the Innocents, is an annual celebration in Mexico that takes place on December 28th. It is a special day to remember all of the children who died during the Massacre of the Innocents when Herod ordered the death of all children under two years old in Bethlehem.

However, it has also become a day for jokes and pranks throughout Mexico. This tradition of playing pranks on this special day dates back centuries, and is believed that it comes from the Spanish tradition of making jokes and pranks on April 1st.

On this day, Mexican children play pranks on their family and friends. Some of the most popular jokes include hiding necessary items like car keys or wallets, and leaving fake love letters or notes around the house. Other pranksters may put salt in someone’s coffee to make it too salty to drink.

Things you should avoid on Dia de Los Inocentes:

Don’t Lend Money
Tradition says that the person who borrows money is not obligated to pay you back.

-Don’t take the newspapers too seriously
Traditionally, important newspapers create fake news, so if you read something that is too crazy to be true, it probably is.

– Don’t propose marriage
Tradition says that it is bad luck to propose on this day.

Día de Los Inocentes is an important day in Mexico and a great way to celebrate the holidays with laughter and jokes. Whether you’re playing pranks, sharing stories, or just enjoying spending time with your family, Dia de Los Inocentes is the perfect way to have some holiday fun.
