The Pinata post below was a great post. While i was reading it, it reminded me of a article i read awhile back, and it made me kind of sad. the article was about the "act of violence"in breaking the pinata. There was a town in the U.S. that has decided to outlaw the old style of pinatas which you must hit with a stick to break. it was said that that teaches a negative lesson to the kids involved in the activity. So, in response to this, a new type of pinata has been created that eliminates the act of violence. It has a pull string that when pulled, open the pinata. I do not understand this. I do not agree with this, especially now after I read the post below and learned the real history and meaning behind the pinata.
