What is Cinco de Mayo?
Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican national holiday that takes place annually on the 5th of May. Although often confused, especially in the United States, with Mexican Independence Day, Cinco de Mayo actually commemorates the day the Mexican army defeated colonial French soldiers at the Battle of Puebla. In Mexico, celebrations tend to focus on this unlikely military victory. In the United States, people tend to celebrate Mexican-American culture more generally.
What are piñatas?
Piñatas are ceremonial vessels made from pottery, cloth or paper mache that are filled with toys or sweets and then broken in celebration. In popular culture today, most people associate them with donkey’s filled with sweets at children’s parties.
The tradition is thought to have originated in Europe in the 14th century, although ancient Mayan people also performed a similar ritual. Today, the piñata has lost most of its religious significance.
