History Of Pinatas
Pinatas have brought laughter and joy to the faces of millions of people around the world for over 400 years. Pinatas were traditionally used to celebrate a successful harvest and were made out of clay pots filled with fruits and vegetables. Pinatas are usually now made of newspaper or corrugated cardboard, or a combination of both. The candy and prizes that you fill the pinata with represent good wishes. The first person to successfully break open the pinata will be rewarded with good luck throughout the coming year. Pinatas are great to use for many different occasions and events such as birthdays, carnivals, family reunions, festivals, school and church events.
