ENGLISH

Although piñatas are more popular during Christmas and birthdays, perhaps it is a good idea to introduce them at the very beginning of the year to start 2021 with good vibes. A traditional piñata is shaped as a 7-point star each representing a capital sin: envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride, sloth and wrath. Mexicans usually hit the piñatas in order to break them and get rid of these 7 capital sins. When the piñata breaks, good things come out of them (chocolates, peanuts and fruits). All in all, breaking the piñatas symbolize the victory of good things over bad ones.

ESPAÑOL

Aunque las piñatas son más utilizadas durante la navidad o los cumpleaños, sería bueno iniciar el año 2021 rompiendo una para atraer las buenas vibras y alejar las malas. De hecho, una piñata tradicional tiene la forma de una estrella con siete picos que simbolizan los pecados capital:, avaricia, envidia, gula, ira, lujuria, pereza y soberbia. Al romper una piñata, los mexicanos buscamos vencer el mal con el bien y es por ello que en el interior de la piñata colocamos cacahuates, chocolates y frutas.
