Piñatas go crazy

I heard that Squirrel Piñatafrom the other day was just getting over a drunken bender! Apparently, his friend, Dino Piñata, didn’t quite end his…

  1. This place has the biggest pinatas on the planet. 🙂 My Canadian friends tell me they are accustomed to the “no-kill” small pinatas where the kids go up and pull a string to release the candy inside. 🙂

    wait,..aren’t these the same people that bash baby seals in the head?! o.O

  3. Seriously, though- I’ve written about our own gigantic pinata party and my daughter’s grrrrrlll power: http://crittersandcrayons.com/2011/09/26/to-kill-a-pinata/

    And that’s when I came across stories about no-kill pinatas.

    There are actually psychologists and moms out there who malign the practice of pinata hitting as violent and contradictory to what a child is taught is “right”.

    In a nutshell, it seems people who don’t agree with the tradition “Kill Pinatas” believe a child is processing the experience like this:

    “Don’t hit- but hit a pinata. I know you love the character. Hit it! Hit it! Hit it ’til it’s dead. (Dale Dale Dale!) Break it open. Here’s you cavity-inducing reward for destroying the thing you love and behaving in a violent manner opposite everything I’ve taught you in your limited and young reality.”

    This article pokes fun at people like this- but cites a psychologist and her reasoning against “Kill Pinatas” which, I imagine has led to a rise in the string-pulling “No-Kill Pinatas”.


    Enjoy. As you can see in my post- My kids whack the heck out of ’em.

  4. Sorry for the typos. Late. I can’t be expected to spell. 🙂

    Didn’t the principal get after Pedro for the exact same thing?

    Look, Pedro, I don’t know how they do things down in Juarez, but here in Idaho we have a little something called pride. Understand? Smashing in the face of a pinata that resembles Summer Wheatley is a disgrace to you, me, and the entire Gem State.

    Stop the insanity.
