Scent: Wild Cherry
In pre-colonial times, the Aztecs had a ceremony to celebrate the birthday of Huitzilopochtli, the god of war. After the Spaniards' conquest of the area, the ceremony was co-opted for purposes of converting the natives to Catholicism. The ceremony included breaking a large container full of treats. Although breaking a piñata today has lost a lot of its religious character, the party really doesn't start until your Tio climbs on the roof and starts pulling on that rope! Make it easy on yourself and buy El Burrito for your car and you can have all the candies you want! We won't judge.
