The Pinata is associated with Mexican fiestas and fun. It's filled with candies and small toys and hung from a tree limb, or such. Then a blindfolded person tries to hit it with a stick. When it's hit and breaks open, the candies are released for everyone to enjoy.
Old World Christmas figural glass ornaments are hand crafted using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds, then a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. They are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of steps to achieve beautiful creations.
