It is time for a fiesta! The tacos and tortillas are ready, but the star of the party is the piñata. That colourful doll brimming with goodies will complete your Mexican fiesta. A hard slap and the sweets fly out.
An old tradition
When we think of the piñata, we immediately think of Mexico, but did you know that it actually originated in China? Tradition travelled from China to Europe and so with the Spanish to Mexico. Regardless of where the tradition may come from, with a piñata in the house, it rains parties.
The star of the party? Ohlala, the piñata!
