In Pre-Cuauhtemoc times, this was the official metztli in which those who could, gave food to all the poor men and women in honor of Xilonen. During the feasts of this month, the traditional drink chienpinolli was prepared along with tamales. The people who wished to eat, brought containers from home and were served the amount they desired and they took what remained home in their containers (Florentine Codex, book 4, page 14).
