A little walk in the city

a few days ago I went to walk in the middle of the city, to a avenue called Reforma.In the mexican folklore, it's a tradition to put a "nacimiento" (literally Birth), made of different materials wich represent the Jesus birth .There were many of them, but this was my favorite.

Very detailed ^^

Few steps over, there was a lots of piñatas wich is a clay container filled with candies and fruits. Is decorated with cardboard and paper of many colors. The tradition says the piñata must be a seven-pointed star wich represent the seven capital sins and the stick for break it is the "power of God". Well...now the piñatas have different forms like bugs, famous tv characters, cars,etc.


I liked this colorful piñata

And this one


later the nigh falls and the "most bigger christmas tree in the world" was switching-on (or so they said)


Sure it was huge *_*


there was a lot of people!

Was a really nice walk!

You have a really interesting blog. I never knew the story of the origins of the pinata. The pictures of the Nativity scene and Christmas tree are lovely.
