    Break the Piñata, not the tradition! Posadas is a traditional way to welcome the Christmas season. We want to celebrate with the community this fun tradition while everyone makes their own pinata and learn about the significance of this tradition.The pinata is a symbol that represents Mexico, and it is more than a fun object to play. Learn how this object was the tool for indoctrination back in the colonial times. Learn how our Native Mexica people celebrated the welcoming of the winter solstice as the birth of the god Huichilopoztli.Make your own pinata and lets break one full of candy.Masks are highly recommended. You will gain free access to the Leonardo museum with your evenbrite ticket. Access is only to regular exhibits. Not to special exhibits
