- from Aztecs
When Aztecs wanted to kick back and unwind, they danced, sang, ate, and drank. They also played sports. Nobles would throw huge banquets.
Even the poor were part of the many festivals held to celebrate happy times. Special events in Aztec life included the opening of a new temple and welcoming warriors back from a victory. They also included the death of a ruler or the rise of a new one. Aside from religious rituals, there were other important ceremonies. These included the birth and naming of a baby, entering and leaving school, marriage, and death.
