Nothing says “party” like a birthday pinata. Load the candy, hang the pinata, let them break it open, and watch the mad scramble ensue. Because they get everyone involved in the birthday fun, pinatas are party activities without peer — timeless, affordable, and barrels of laughs, even for tired and jaded adults. Below are few Pinata fun facts that we have collected!

1. While now famous for being a part of Hispanic culture, piñatas may have actually originated in China. Marco Polo, during his epic odyssey throughout Asia, witnessed many Chinese creating figures of cows, buffaloes, and oxen out of colored paper. They were used during the Chinese New Year, during which they would break them apart with sticks (spilling out seeds rather than candy), and then burn the remnants and gather the resulting ashes for good luck.

2. At least partly due to Marco Polo and other explorers and traders, the piñata was brought to Europe. Eventually, after becoming a tradition within Spain, missionaries from the country that journeyed to the New World would utilize piñatas in an attempt to attract indigenous peoples to religious ceremonies and try to convert them to Christianity.

3. In Mexico, piñatas have often been used as political commentary. Oftentimes, when a political figure or candidate is unpopular, their likeness is made into piñata form and they are thus beaten with sticks by those opposed to them.

4. While piñatas in the United States are usually filled with candy, those in Mexico more often than not contain fruit (along with said candy). These often include oranges and guavas.

5. In Mexico, the tradition of the piñata is often associated with Christmas, and they often enjoy the most sales during the holiday season.
