Birthday's in Mexico
Friday, Feb. 8th 2013 at 9pm
In Mexico a piñata is filled with candy and the birthday child then is blindfolded and tries to hit the piñata with a bat. The first one is for your name or saint's day which on this day you attend church. A priest blesses you. Then you go home to have a party that includes relatives and close family friends. The saint's day party is much quieter and more formal. When a girl turns 15 in Mexico, a special mass is held to honor her. In is know as a Kinsenyeta.
