Just what is a 'Pinata'..?

Pinata (pronounced as pin-ya-ta) is a candy or toy filled container suspended by a rope over a tree or a ceiling. Kids are blindfolded and are given a stick to break this container to collect their candies or toys. Not sure if these traditions were started by Spanish or Chinese people in Mexico, but sure that this tradition was started in Mexico.
