And when someone is well guided, the piñata is broken! Then, from heaven, we are showered with gifts…fruit, candy, toys, immense happiness that fills us with joy. Evil has been destroyed, God is with us, the missionaries have accomplished their duty and we Mexicans enjoy one of our most fun and exciting traditions.
The piñata has been transformed like the popular culture, and has changed its form from the traditional star to bunnies, dogs, carrots, beets, Tweety-bird and Pokemon…breaking the piñata will always be a thrill for all children. These days piñatas are not used just for the posadas — now they’re a must for any children’s party and other occasions.
