Today is Cinco de Mayo, and while it’s used by many as an excuse to party (read: drink heavily), there’s actually a lot of art associated with the holiday. Specifically, we’re thinking piñatas. They might be glorified-candy holders to some, but it takes some serious skill to create an amazing piñata. Get ready for your Cinco de Mayo festivities by checking out these awesomely artful piñatas.
