The Holy Innocents were the children massacred by the paganist King Herod shortly after the birth of Jesus, in an unsuccessful attempt to kill Him. It is described in Matthew 2:16-18.

Historical estimates range from dozens of innocent victims of this slaughter, to thousands. The Day of the Holy Innocents is remembered on December 28.
