Pinata Day

One of the highlights of a birthday party is grabbing a stick and hitting the pinata so it can break, and a bunch of candies ends up falling out. The pinata is the highlight of any celebration that uses them, and it is not a surprise because when the sweets fall out, it creates a lot of excitement. There is a day for that, which is Pinata Day!

April 18th is the day when you celebrate hitting a pinata with a stick as it is Pinata Day. Pinatas are part of birthdays and celebrations worldwide. You can find pinatas that are meant to be anything. However, you can picture the pinata as a donkey made with paper mache and filled with candies. You take the stick and hit the paper mache donkey until it breaks! But today, you can find pinatas in the shape of a car, a Disney character, or even Mario! They are also colorful to make it even more exciting, and you need to wear a blindfold as you attempt to hit the donkey with the stick, so it opens up.

When the pinta breaks, then all of the candies that fall to the ground leave you scrambling for them. You want to find the best sweets and compete with others who are doing the same. It is fair to say that pinatas are the highlight of any celebration, especially birthday parties. For instance, one of the things that kids enjoy the most when they go to a birthday party is the cake’s pinata. You have to wonder how the pinata tradition was established.

The History Of Pinata Day

The pinata’s history did not come from Mexico, as Mexico adopted it as a celebratory tradition. However, during the 14th century, in Europe is when it began. Those who celebrated regardless of the reason for the party filled containers with prizes, and everyone had to smack them open with a stick so the container would open and they would pour down. The reason that you associate pinatas with Mexican celebrations is that Spanish conquistadors introduced them to Mexico. The pinata’s real meaning is how it demonstrates the battle of the soul against evil and temptation. However, you would not associate the pinata with that, as it is a fun part of parties.

How To Celebrate Pinata Day

Go find a pinata supplier and fill it up with prizes Then give it a whack, and the prizes will pour. Take a picture of the pinata and the prizes, or maybe someone can take a picture of you hitting the pinata. Why not share that on social media and use #PinataDay in the post.
