piñata's are candy-filled paper-mache objects (often animals) that are a main activity in birthdays and celebrations. You blindfold kids one at a time, and they take whacks at the piñata with a stick until it cracks open and the candy falls out.

Yep, tardded1 guessed it first (unless spooks aren't fly, which I do not know because I don't knoew the word spook).
It is interesting the comment of 160201 because he/she lists mediterranean countries, and curiously I had never seen this trick before going to mexico: meybe us italians don't use it, but other close to us do.

Thanks John_Stone for exaplaining about the "pinata" now I realize that is pronounced very similarly to the italian word "pignatta" which has the same meanings...and also means big pot.

It does help keep the flies away. There is a chain of BBQ restaurants here in Austin that uses them, and several clubs along the lake.

So how do bags of water suspended from the ceiling keep flies away? Do the flies get confused or something?
