Most Hispanics are known as fun loving people, and one party game that developed in Mexico was the piñata. This is a cardboard shape decorated with colored paper and filled with candy, small toys and other treats. The piñata is hoisted into the air and players are blind-folded and allowed to hit the piñata with sticks. When the piñata breaks open everyone gets to enjoy the surprises which spill out.
Many Hispanic girls are thrown a quinceañera on their fifteenth birthdays. This party tells the world that the girl is now a young woman. The birthday girl dresses up in a ball gown, has her hair and make-up done, and often dances for the first time at her party. Some girls also arrive at the party in flat shoes only to change into high heels during the fun.
