The Pi~nata is associated with Mexican fiestas and fun. It also has a Christian meaning. The candies inside the colorful paper figure are temptations, the blindfolded person stands for blind unwavering faith, and the stick symbolizes goodness. When the candies are released they are the just rewards of faith and goodness!

Each figurative glass ornament produced by Old World Christmas is hand crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's.
Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds made exclusively for Old World Christmas, before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations.
