La Piñata

In Fun
Relationship: Im/migrant

The piñata is a tradition from Mexico. It is used for birthdays and holidays. We use the piñata to break it and get candy so we put the candy inside of it.We put it up in the sky so the kids can break it.  When the kids are breaking it we all sing a song and when the  song is done (he or she) stop and breaks it.  When it breaks the candy falls and the kids go and get it.  It is made of paper and carton and sometimes it's easy to break and sometimes it's hard to break. We break the piñata with a wooden stick. It is important to me because when I was in Mexico I had piñatas in my birthdays and in the holidays.  In Mexico we use the piñata a lot of the time it represents  me as a  person  because we always used in it in Mexico and I'm not in Mexico no more.I make pinata all the time.I can make 5 piñatas in one day.I sell the piñatas for $5 to make money
