The piñata is said to have originated at the same time as the Christmas Posadas, in Acolman de Nezahualcoyotl, in the present state of Mexico, near the archaeological site of Teotihuacan.

In 1586 Augustinian friars in Acolman received authorisation from Pope Sixtus V to hold what were called "misas de aguinaldo", which later became the Posadas. It was at these masses that were held in the days leading up to Christmas that the friars introduced the piñata. They used the piñata as an allegory to help them in their efforts to evangelise the native people of the region.

The original piñata was shaped like a star with points. The points represented the deadly sins, and the bright colors of the piñata symbolise temptation. The blindfold represents faith and the stick is virtue or the will to overcome sin. The candies and other goodies inside the piñata are the riches of the kingdom of heaven. Thus teaching that with faith and virtue one could overcome sin and receive all the rewards of heaven.

Perfect for celebrating Christmas with the family at Christmas parties.
