German kids get a bitchin’ piñata on the first day of school

This is either a fantastic real thing or a fantastic ridiculous fib. Either way I’m fascinated by it. Why, oh why, are schultutes not mandatory here in the US?! That last photo, though,…nothing screams “ready for the SS” like 8 year olds holding giant, candy-filled schultutes while scowling.

It could also simply be that there is no schultute magnificent enough to trick one into thinking that the next 180 days sitting at a desk is going to be awesome and fun.
