With jokes of greater or lesser caliber, every 28 December the Day of the Holy Innocents is celebrated, which however has nothing joyful or funny. The Catholic Church commemorates the massacre of the Holy Innocents in the hands of King Herod.
According to the Gospel of St. Matthew, the story begins when magicians arrive in Jerusalem in search of the future King of Israel who according to them had just been born.These sages explained that they had seen their star appear in the east and remembered the Old Testament prophecy that said, “When a new star appears in Israel, a new king is born, who shall reign over all nations.
King Herod, fearful of losing the throne, and being deceived by the wise men of the east who had promised to provide him with the exact place of Jesus' birth, commanded to kill all children under 2 years of age.
It was at that time that an angel warned Joseph to flee to Egypt, saving the life of God's son from the massacre of the Holy Innocents. Every December 28, the Catholic Church remembers the day of the killing of children.
Later, in the Middle Ages, the commemoration of King Herod's cruelty coincided with a pagan tradition known as the Feast of the Crazy, a day full of holidays and rampant, celebrated mainly in France.
