Pinata


Every year since I can remember we've done a pinata on (or around) Christmas Eve. My mom used to make the pinata - spending hours and hours creating the cutest little snowman or santa. It used to be a calm, yet fun festivity. Now as we've grown up we get somewhat violent with the hitting - looking forward to it as a way of releasing pent up frustrations. We've moved up to store-bought pinatas (though we miss Mom's cute ones!) and the candy has improved (this year it included little candy bars - YUM!) It's fun as adults to still get to enjoy banging around the pinata, and to get to share the tradition with Gabe.
