We always have piñatas at our family birthday parties, but I never knew the history on them, so I did some research. Turns out that it is believed the idea originated in China, and then did some traveling through Europe, Spain and then finally to Mexico. It seems that several countries have a similar tradition. And we have Marco Polo to thank for introducing it to the world.
Well, that’s ok, it is our Mexican family tradition and we enjoy it.
So,we went searching for the perfect pinata the other day.
Our oldest grandson will be having a birthday celebration this week, so we picked him up and took him to the party store. He walked through the aisles, eyeing all the different characters until he came upon the Angry Birds piñata and pointed to it saying this was the one.
So into the car it went!
Our family is very multicultural, so it’s really important for us to keep some of our traditions alive!♥♥♥
