Piñatas are also the symbol of fiestas (celebrations) par excellence. Nowadays, they often have a human, animal or cartoon character form. The original piñatas, on the other hand,
were balls with seven cones that symbolized the seven deadly sins. The stick stood for the power God gives us to fight evil and the blindfolded eyes symbolized faith.
Last but not least, the treats represented the happiness of fighting evil. The religious significance, however, was largely lost. And nowadays, piñatas simply mean fun.
