️ City: Miranda

️ General Info: The Dancing Devils of Yare (Diablos Danzantes del Yare) is the name of a religious festivity celebrated in San Francisco de Yare, Miranda state, Venezuela, at the Corpus Christi day. The Sociedades del Santísimo (Societies of the Holiest) are in charge of the celebration. Its origins are traced back to the 18th century, being the oldest brotherhood of the American continent.

Every Corpus Christi (nine Thursdays after Holy Thursday), a ritual dance is performed by the so-called "Dancing Devils", who wear colorful garments (commonly all red), layers of stripped fabric, masks of grotesque appearance and also accessories like crosses, scapulars, rosaries and other sorts of amulets.

The fraternity of the devils is divided in hierarchical order, represented in their masks.

There are other expressions of this particular festivity named according to the location, such as the Devils of Naiguatá and the Devils of Chuao.

xavidetora La farinera borda (Amanita phalloides) és un bolet altament tòxic i responsable de la majoria de morts per la intoxicació per ingesta de bolets a Catalunya. El trobem preferentment en terrenys àcids, juntament amb els ceps i ous de reig.

The Amanita phalloides mushroom is highly toxic and responsible for for the majority of deaths from poisoning caused by eating mushrooms in Catalonia.
