    • Quinceañeras Melita B2
      • Quinceañeras are big parties for 15 year old girls.
      • Look at the girl in her party dress!
      • These parties began in Mexico with the Aztecs.
      • Quinceaneras are an initiation into society.
      The initiation used to be to demonstrate and enforce the important aspects of the culture .
      • Quinceaneras used to be to present the young girl to the community as ladies.
      The quinceaneras signified the girls becoming charming women and taking on responsibilities.
      • Mexican girls today look forward to the parties with pride and excitement.
      • In Mexico, the quinceanera begins with a thanksgiving mass.
      • The family and godparents of the girl attend the thanksgiving mass.
      • At the mass, the girl graciously receives a rosary or necklace.
      The girl receives a tiara also.
    • Before leaving mass, the girl leaves her bouquet on the alter of the virgin Mary.
      • After mass, the girl goes to her party where her friends and family give her presents.
      • The party can be in the girl’s house, the street, a banquet hall, or a casino.
      • To start the party, the girl dances with her damas and chambelanes.
      • The damas include the friends or sisters of the girl.
      • After the dance with the chmbelanes and damas, the girl dances with her family.
      After the family dance, everyone dances. &
      • When the dancing ends, dinner begins and a band plays.
      • All night the guests eat, talk, and dance.
      The morning after the party, there’s a special breakfast.
      • The close friends and family of the girl attend the breakfast and eat the left over food from the party.
      • I wish that I could’ve had a quinceanera.
      Hopefully, this unique tradition will continue for a long time.
