In photos: Luzon’s devils carnival

FACES of the day:

People with black costumes, covered in oil and soot, carrying bull horns on their heads and cowbells on a belt representing the devil talk before taking part on the carnival celebrations at the small village of Luzon, Spain, Feb. 9, 2013. Preserved documents from the fourteenth century document Luzon’s devils, but the real origin of the tradition could be much older. Carnival festivals are celebrated in their own way around hundreds of villages in Spain.
