In the "Endiablada", is a tradition that has survived through the centuries in honor of the Candelaria's Virgin and San Blas. Candelaria, refers to the Jewish protocol, in which the Virgin Mary had to present her new baby, Jesus, to the temple, forty days after his birth. In the Catholic teachings, it is said that this action caused the Virgin Mary great anxiety and shame because of the public knowledge of the unusual circumstances of Jesus’s birth. La Endiablada brotherhood with their noisy bells are said to be trying to divert the public’s attention so that the Virgin Mary could fulfill her obligation and avoid suffering such embarrassment and shame. The connection of the dancing 'diablos' to San Blas has another explanation, according to a local legend shepherds found an image of San Blas, a miraculous event took place and they understood to be a sign that the saint was meant to stay in Almonacid. As a sign of their joy the shepherds rang the bells of their cattle so giving La Endiablada their famous cowbells. (AP Photo/Daniel Ochoa de Olza)
