>Easter Devil Whippings In El Salvador

>Easter gets off to a very interesting start in the Central American country of El Salvador. To start off the celebrations, every year, pantomime style devils roam the streets whipping people for their sins (all in good fun of coarse) and by the looks of the action in the following two clips, they don’t hold back. I have only one complaint about this. There does seem to be a lack of “She Devils”, not only does this seem sexist, on the devil equal employment front but the tourist industry in the area would probably get a huge boost, from people flying in to celebrate Easter, if there were a few She Devils roaming the streets handing out whippings. Please enjoy the clips of this event.
